Missing snowmobiler found dead


A missing snowmobiler was discovered dead following an extensive search on Lake Winnipegosis last week.
On Mar. 31, at approximately 12:50 p.m., searchers located a damaged snowmobile on the lake approximately 18 kilometres north of Sapotaweyak Cree Nation. The body of Walter Thomas was located a short time later a short distance from the snowmobile.
It is believed he died from exposure.
The search began after Winnipegosis RCMP received a report of stranded fishermen and a missing snowmobiler on Thompson Island on Lake Winnipegosis, Mar. 30.
