On Friday evening, members with the RCMP’s Underwater Recovery Team located the body of the 47-year-old male in the Winnipeg River near his last seen location. 

A search started on Thursday after RCMP received a report of a possible drowning in the RM of Lac du Bonnet. 

It was reported that a 47-year-old male was working on a boat on his dock when a short time later the boat was seen floating unattended down the river. The boat was recovered but the male was not located. 

RCMP have now reported that his body has been discovered and the death is not considered suspicious.
