A 25-year-old man’s body was recovered in Arthur Lake on Aug. 3.
At 8:38 p.m. on July 30, the Vanderhoof RCMP received a report of a possible drowning that occurred at the lake approximately a 45 minute drive south of Vanderhoof.
Two individuals were believed to be fishing on Arthur Lake near Finger Lake when the boat they were in capsized. Only one of the two is believed to have made it to shore where he flagged down a motorist who was able to call police.
Vanderhoof and Terrace Search and Rescue searched the shores and lake using sonar.
No foul play is suspected and the BC Coroner’s Service has taken carriage of the investigation.
