The body of the missing boater at Sandy Beach has been recovered.
After five days of searching, the RCMP pulled the body of the 48-year-old Lloydminster man out of the lake in the afternoon of Wednesday, August 5.
In the late afternoon of Saturday, August 1, Maidstone RCMP were called to the lake after a man fell off the side of his boat near the north end of the lake and did not resurface.
The Maidstone detachment partnered with detachments from Lloydminster and Turtleford, as well as the Lloydminster Rescue Squad and the Britannia-Wilton Fire Department in the search. On Sunday, August 2, the team also called in an international dive team from Saskatchewan.
The RCMP have notified the man’s family, and will not be releasing his name to the public.
