The remains of a snowmobiler have been located nearly three months after he went missing.

Dan LeMay, a 50-year-old man, went missing during a snowmobile ride on February 21 near Lake Eleanor. At the time, he called in saying he was lost. Droves of people joined the search over the course of two days, but RCMP declared LeMay dead after believing he fell through the water.

“When we saw the evidence of where he had likely gone through the ice, knowing how thorough the search has been, we’re really quite confident that this is how it turned out," Wayne LeMay said after the outpouring of support to find his brother.

The missing Grunthal man's remains were located Monday morning in the same area he was missing from. RCMP received a call at 10 a.m. that remains were found on Eleanor Lake. The RCMP Water Transport Unit arrived to help. The remains later were confirmed as belonging to LeMay.

RCMP Manitoba was planning to search for his remains this spring.
