Provincial Police continue to investigate a weekend drowning on Manitoulin Island.

Police said Ian McCauley, a 41-year old father of six from M'Chigeeng First Nation, went missing early Saturday morning in Whitefish Lake.

McCauley accompanied a group onto the lake in a pontoon boat, and dove into the lake.

He never resurfaced.

The O-P-P Underwater Search and Recovery Unit was called in and McCauley's body was found soon after.

Police say there were no life jackets on the boat, and alcohol was a factor in the drowning.

A post-mortem is now being conducted by the coroner in Sudbury.

Police remind everyone to avoid consuming alcohol before heading out boating.
