Body recovered from Quebec's Lac Saint-Jean, 4 snowmobilers still missing
The body of one of the five missing snowmobilers that has been missing in Quebec's Lac Saint-Jean region since Tuesday night has been found, provincial police say. The body was located Friday afternoon about two kilometres downstream from where the group of French tourists broke through the ice in La Grande Décharge, an outlet to Lac Saint-Jean. The guide leading the excursion, a Montreal man, was pulled from the water following the incident. He died several hours after being admitted to hospital. Police have not identified the body found Friday.
Crews are continuing their search for a Kamloops teen who never returned home after snowboarding at Sun Peaks Resort over the weekend.
Carson Hadwin has been identified by family as the teen who went missing Sunday afternoon at the ski resort.
According to Alan Hobler with Kamloops Search and Rescue, the 14-year-old had taken a shuttle early in the day up to the ski resort, and was last seen around 10:30 a.m. Sunday on the skill hill.
Lac-St-Jean body identified as missing snowmobiler Gilles Claude
Quebec provincial police have identified the body found in Lac-St-Jean yesterday as one of the missing snowmobilers, 58-year-old Gilles Claude.Claude, 58, was part of a group of eight French nationals, led by a guide, who were trying to cross a snow-covered channel between the towns of Saint-Henri-de-Taillon and Alma Tuesday night when the ice gave way.
Kamloops SAR was called around 6 p.m. to assist in the search when Hadwin failed to come home.
“We’ve been out all night,” said Hobler. “We’ve been running continuously.”
Hobler said Kamloops SAR has had about 20 people scouring the mountain by helicopter, drone and ground for any sign of Hadwin since the search began on Sunday.
Vancouver-based journalist Ash Kelly identified Hadwin as her cousin and asked the public to keep an eye out for the teen.
“We love this kid. He’s the BEST kind of kid,” Kelly posted on Twitter Monday morning. “A news junkie, an outdoor kid, a mountain biker, a snowboarder and the best kind of family anyone could ask for. We are all terrified for him.”
Hadwin is wearing a grey and green Burton snowboarding jacket, along with black pants, black helmet and white snowboard boots. Kelly said Hadwin’s bag was found at the resort’s chalet, and that there were no indications the teen left the mountain.
