RCMP fear a man may have drowned Thursday in the RM of Lac du Bonnet. 

On Thursday at approximately 12:25 pm, RCMP responded to a report of a possible drowning at a property along the Winnipeg River.

It was reported that a 47-year-old male was working on a boat on his dock when a short time later the boat was seen floating unattended down the river. The boat was recovered but the male was not located.

A search was launched Thursday with the assistance of the RCMP's Underwater Recovery Team but was unsuccessful in locating the male. The search continues Friday.

The investigation continues.
