Around five dozen people — including emergency responders and also friends and family — were involved Monday in the search of the South Saskatchewan River for a missing 17-year-old boy.

Saskatoon RCMP were notified Sunday around 8:45 p.m. that the teen had gone missing from the beach near the Fred Heal canoe launch approximately 12 kilometres south of the city, RCMP said in a news release. RCMP, Saskatoon police and Saskatoon fire “all have resources on the scene and are continuing to search the water and surrounding area,” RCMP said. The canoe launch was closed Monday as part of the search for the teen.

Family and friends of the teen were at the scene, watching on the sandy beach as RCMP officers prepared to enter the water around noon, following other searchers who had been in the river through the morning. ATVs were also brought to the scene, though they weren’t immediately deployed.

Search manager Kim Audette said police and civilian boats were on the water, and an aircraft was aiding the search from above. Audette noted that the shrubs and sandy terrain in the area around the canoe launch is “really difficult” to search.

 

Why police renewed their search for 2 missing Indigenous teens .
The renewed police search for two missing Indigenous girls who disappeared nine years ago has come up empty. Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander disappeared in 2008. They were 16 and 17 at the time, respectively. The teens had planned to go out dancing and were supposed to spend the night at Alexander's house in Maniwaki, Que.
