The OPP’s Underwater Search and Recovery Unit is continuing the search today for a missing canoeist on Pigeon Lake in the city of Kawartha Lakes.

On Tuesday evening five people left from a residence and went out in a canoe which then capsized. Four of the occupants were located by a boater and taken to shore. One occupant is still missing.

None of the occupants were wearing life jackets.
