The search will restart with divers from the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) today (February 16), following information received by a citizen. A local resident may have seen an orange garment on the Ottawa River, in the area of St-Jacques Street, in Isle-aux-Allumettes. Police are on hand to coordinate the search to ensure that the operation proceeds safely.
Yesterday, the SQ asked residents to pay special attention along the river, as the victim was wearing an orange and black snowmobile coat. Since Saturday, SQ divers have been present to try to find the missing 30-year-old man. The search was concentrated on the edge of the Ottawa River following a trail in the snow near white water.
