A 42-year-old man from Sherridon has been found dead after going missing while swimming at Kisseynew Lake.
On July 26, the man was at Kisseynew with a family member about 30 kilometres away from Sherridon when he jumped off a bridge over the lake. The man, who has not been identified by RCMP, did not resurface. The family member searched the area, but was not able to find the man.
Cranberry Portage RCMP were called to Kisseynew Lake later that day around 6:45 p.m., once the family member was able to call police - the incident took place in a remote area with no cell coverage. RCMP searched the scene but could not find the man.
The search continued July 27. Around 2:30 p.m., the man's body was found in the water near the bridge.
RCMP are investigating the death.
