Just before 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, RCMP along with the Hutterite Emergency Aquatic Response Team (HEART), and the Canadian Coast Guard, recovered the body of the missing 42-year-old boater from Lake Winnipeg. The male went missing on June 13, 2020, when the boat he was in capsized, near Belair, Manitoba.

In their press release, the RCMP thanked all the first responders who assisted in the search including HEART, Canadian Coast Guard, Victoria Beach Fire and Rescue, CFB Trenton, and the community members who came out everyday. “We would also like to acknowledge the efforts of a 46-year-old male from the area, who was one of the first people on scene, and rescued one of the boaters.”
