KETTLE AND STONY POINT, Ont. -- Police say they have found the body of a 58-year-old man reported missing after a fishing boat capsized northeast of Sarnia while the search for a second man continues.
Provincial police say the body of William George was recovered overnight Saturday after the four-metre aluminum boat flipped and sent the two men plunging into Lake Huron about two kilometres off Kettle Point.
The OPP and local Kettle and Stony Point First Nation police say they are heading back into the water today as they search for 50-year-old Kettle Point resident Craig Bressette.
Police say the two men were reported missing Friday afternoon after the boat went under in a southern stretch of the lake.
