High Prairie RCMP said Thursday that the body of a man who had been missing on Lesser Slave Lake since Sunday had been found.

RCMP said the body of the 50-year-old man was recovered Wednesday afternoon by police.

Officers had been called to the lake Sunday just before 6:30 p.m., over reports a boater was missing near the Hilliard’s Bay boat launch.

Reports indicated the man had been fishing on a small pontoon boat when it capsized.

An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday.
