Update August 9, 2017: The RCMP Underwater Recovery Team from British Columbia is now on scene assisting. Efforts are ongoing.
A search is underway for a man in his 50’s who was fishing on a small pontoon boat when it capsized.
On Sunday evening around 6:20 RCMP received a call that a boat had overturned near the Hilliard’s Bay boat launch on Lesser Slave Lake.
High Prairie RCMP along with a number of resources have been called in to help. Teams searched into the early morning hours Monday, with no sign of the fisherman.
The search continues today and we will have more information as it becomes available.
