White Bear male drowns at Alameda


A 43-year-old male from the White Bear First Nation has died during an apparent drowning at Alameda Dam.

The RCMP Underwater Recovery Team (URT), the Carnduff RCMP, the Oxbow Fire Department and White Bear residents were involved in the search. The male was last seen in the afternoon of August 20, while he was trying to swim across the reservoir.

The searchers from White Bear discovered the body.  

The RCMP URT team, which is comprised of two Saskatchewan officers and one Manitoba member, were searching for the remains on August 22. As they were looking in one area, the White Bear volunteers informed the URT team that they had located the body of the adult male, approximately 450 feet from where he went missing.

The man’s family has been notified and his name will not be released at this time.

The Carnduff RCMP and the URT team utilized the Oxbow Fire Department’s boat, which was able to go into a remote area of the dam that was not accessible by the URT equipment.

They would also like to commend the searchers from the White Bear First Nation for their assistance.
