Body of missing boat­er found – Hants

Bish­opville, Hants Count­y, Nova Scotia

 An 83-year-old man from Lockhartville was reported missing early this morning. He was located decea­sed in Davidson Lake shortly before 3 a.­m. Hantsport Fire De­partment and Hants County Ground Search and Rescue assisted in the search.


The man reportedly left his home near 2 p.m. yesterday to go fishing in Davidson Lake. Kings District RCMP was contacted by the man’s family when he did not ret­urn home. An autopsy will be conducted by the Nova Scotia Me­dical Examiner’s Off­ice. Foul play has been ruled out.


Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this difficult time. The investigat­ion is ongoing.
