Problems running memtest86+

I installed memtest86+ on my FreeBSD 11 box which had been installed a 
few days back with the following partition schema on a 120 GB SSD :

ada0p1 : 200M : efi
ada0p2 : 512K : freebsd-boot
ada0p3 : 115G : freebsd-ufs
ada0p4 : (remaining ~4G) : freebsd-swap

I see no mention of ada0p1 or ada0p2 anywhere in fstab. Is that okay ?

To run memtest86+, I escaped to the loader prompt, issued 'unload' and 
tried a few things to go forward :

load /boot/opt/memtest86+
load /opt/memtest86+
boot /boot/opt/memtest86+
boot /opt/memtest86+
boot /dev/ada0p2/boot/opt/memtest86+
boot /dev/ada0p2/opt/memtest86+

I only get the following messages :

Don't know how to load
Can't find kernel

Can anyone please tell me what to do to run memtest86+ with the current 
setup ?
