Local boaters from area found Monday
Local recreational fishermen Everett Westerneng, 19, and Dallas Simons, 26, went to Coal Lake to enjoy the sport on May 18, and were found dead on May 28, 10 days later.
RCMP members, family and friends searched for four days before the police service temporarily suspended its search for the two men.
It was reported that the Camrose men were missing early Saturday morning. About 200 people launched a search for them and all they could come up with was a capsized four-metre boat, tackle box and other personal items belonging to the two Camrose fishermen. A truck belonging to one of the men was also found in the parking lot near the boat launch.
It is thought that neither of the men was wearing a life-jacket. RCMP said the search was a slow process due to the muddy and weedy bottom of the lake. An underwater recovery team from Edmonton also came up empty.
Coal Lake is a popular boating and fishing spot near Gwynne.
