Members of the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team have recovered the body of the 26-year-old man from New Ross who went missing while snowmobiling on Black River Lake on Saturday evening.
At approximately 11:20 a.m. today, divers from the Nova Scotia RCMP Underwater Recovery Team located the body close to where the snowmobile went through the ice. The death is not considered suspicious and the investigation is ongoing.
The RCMP wishes to thank all of the citizens who assisted throughout the week. In addition, we thank personnel from the Wolfville, New Minas and Kentville Fire Departments, as well as Emergency Health Services paramedics, Valley Ground Search and Rescue and the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre’s Cormorant helicopter who assisted with the search.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man during this extremely difficult time.
