RCMP suspend search for Coal Lake boaters
RCMP have suspended the search for two men who went missing last week on Coal Lake.
The two men, Dallas Simons, 26, and Everett Westerneng, 19, believed to be from Camrose, didn't come home Friday night from a fishing trip on the lake in Wetaskiwin County.
On Saturday, police found an overturned boat belonging to one of the men.
An RCMP helicopter and dog team along with Wetaskiwin Search and Rescue conducted the search. They were later joined by an underwater recovery team that also performed a sonar scan of the lake.
Although the RCMP have suspended the search, friends and family are continuing their efforts.
