Saturday, December 12th, 2009 – 13:28:09

Members of the Superior East O.P.P – Wawa Detachment are investigating an incident involving a Hawk Junction man who went through the ice at Manitowik Lake while snowmobiling on Thursday. Daniel Boissoneau, 46, went into the water sometime late Thursday triggering a search by the O.P.P and the Michipicoten Fire & Emergency Services that failed to find his body. Stormy weather throughout Ontario has hampered further search efforts.

The O.P.P. Underwater Search & Recovery Unit is arriving in Wawa on Saturday and will be commencing an intense search.
