- The OPP Marine and Trails Unit(MTU), OPP Emergency Response Team(ERT) with help from the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Canadian Military and other community partners were able to locate the two stranded fisherman who were transported to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
- The search continues for two missing fishermen on the Canadian side of Lake of the Woods. The Ontario Provincial police say the men are 43 and 75 years old. The pair were last seen near Fadden’s island on Tuesday. OPP’s Marine and Trails Unit and an Emergency Response Team is looking for a silver 16 foot Alumamarine boat with a 25 horsepower Yamaha motor.
The names of the missing men have not been released. Snow earlier this week reduced visibility and hampered the use of a search helicopter. Fadden’s Island is located north of Baudette (MN).
