The body of a six-year-old boy has been discovered months after he was swept away by strong currents, officials say.
Loon Lake RCMP, nearby residents and search teams lead the initial recovery efforts with the search continuing for months.
On Wednesday, at around 3 p.m., members from the Hutterian Emergency Aquatic Response Team recovered the boy’s body.
According to RCMP, the body was located over a kilometre away from where he was last seen, which was the southeast end of Makwa Lake.
Saskatchewan RCMP said the strong currents caused the boy to drown.
