The RCMP has located the body of a 64-year-old man, who was reported missing from East Kemptville on February 11.
The missing man had not been seen since February 5, and was reported missing on February 11. He was known to walk and hike extensively in the area.
Yarmouth Rural RCMP was assisted by local volunteer Ground Search and Rescue, and RCMP Air Services and Underwater Recovery Team (URT). Searchers checked the lake and shoreline near the missing man’s home until February 13 with negative results.
The remains were located today in Beaverhouse Lake by the RCMP URT. Divers were assisted by the New Minas Volunteer Fire Department in the retrieval of the remains. The department has a hovercraft which was instrumental in getting members of the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team to the location to retrieve the deceased man.
The RCMP would also like to acknowledge the assistance provided by community members.
