Police received a call of a possible drowning in the lake after a male and female had gone swimming.  The woman had made it back to shore and could not locate her swimming companion in the water or on the shore.  He was reportedly last seen in the Danielson Provincial Park area.

Unfortunately, the male has not been located at this time.  The search efforts had to be suspended for the day due to bad weather, and they will resume on Sunday morning.
