Cranberry Portage, Manitoba

News release

On July 26, 2020, at approximately 6:45 pm, Cranberry Portage RCMP responded to a report of a missing swimmer, on Kisseynew Lake, approximately 30 km from the community of Sherridon.

Earlier in the afternoon, a 42-year-old male, originally from Sherridon, was at the lake with a family member, when he jumped off the Kisseynew bridge, but did not resurface.

The family member searched the water but did not locate the male. Due to the remoteness of the area and no cell coverage, RCMP were not called until later that day.

RCMP attended the scene and conducted a search but the male was not located.

Search efforts continued on July 27, and at approximately 2:30 pm, the body of the 42-year-old male was recovered in the water, near the bridge.

RCMP continue to investigate.
