On the day of his disappearance, Andrew left his base camp on Brunswick Lake in Algoma to check his trap line.  His trap line was about 8 km long and located near Ericson Creek.

When Andrew did not return, a small search party was organized on November 13, 1060.  The group did find a rifle leaning against a tree and were able to confirm that it belonged to Andrew.  Continuing  their search the following day, the searchers travelled to a camp on Ericson Creek where they found a half eaten beaver.

A year after his disappearance, searchers returned to inspect the camp and trap line.  Unfortunately, there were no indicators that either had been visited.
