Band leaders from a northern First Nation were in Saskatoon Friday using a submarine camera to search for the body of a man seen walking into the river two weeks ago. It's believed that man may have been Myles MacIntosh.
MacIntosh was last seen at Outlaws bar in Saskatoon, celebrating at his own stag party with his friends on Feb. 1. At about midnight he was allegedly kicked out by a bouncer.
Originally from Nova Scotia, the 28-year-old was supposed to get married in Saskatoon this weekend.
His family believes he's the man who witnesses saw walking near the Sid Buckwold bridge onto the river ice and into the water that same night.
Now a specialized underwater camera is being used to try to find his body.
CBC News spoke with MacIntosh's family Friday, and they said they contacted First Nations leaders in Grandmother's Bay where this submarine is based.
The band told them the camera was recently used to successfully find the body of a person who went missing there.
They said band members are in Saskatoon conducting the search on their own time and free of charge.
As of early Friday evening nothing had been found, but the underwater search will continue.
The Saskatoon police are still trying to piece together what happened the night MacIntosh went missing.
His family firmly believes he fell into the river.
