OPP continue search in Rainy River, locate man's body in Winnipeg River
Provincial police in northwestern Ontario have located one of the two men who went missing while in the water on the weekend.
The OPP's underwater search and rescue unit found the body of 20-year-old Minaki resident John Savoyard in the Winnipeg River.
Savoyard reportedly jumped into the water from the Darlington Bay Bridge on Saturday morning and failed to surface.
OPP say the area is popular for swimming and jumping into the river.
A post mortem examination was scheduled for Monday at the Lake of The Woods District Hospital in Kenora.
Rainy River swimmer still missing
Rainy River OPP report they are looking for a 27-year-old man who went missing on Sunday in the Rainy River in Emo. He was one of two men trying to swim out into the Rainy River and return to the Emo Public Docks — a distance of about 60 metres.
One man returned, while the second went under the water and didn't surface.
Investigators are working with the Koochiching County, Minn. Sheriff's Department and the OPP's underwater search and recovery unit is also assisting.
The OPP are reminding the public to practise water safety and exercise caution when swimming in unknown waters.
