Lynn Lake RCMP assist with search for missing hunters

Tadoule Lake, Manitoba – On December 10, 2021, at 9:30 am, Thompson Rural RCMP received a report of an overdue hunting party believed to be in the Tadoule Lake area.

Officers were advised that three males, ages of 65, 27 and 23 had left Kinoosao, Saskatchewan, on December 2nd and were destined for the Clifton Lake, Manitoba, area to hunt for caribou.

The trio of hunters were last seen around December 6th by another hunter, a 55-year-old male, from Brochet, who advised that based on their previous location, they should have returned home by the 8th or 9th.

The 55-year-old returned back to the area where he believed they were heading to and located the trio and discovered that the 65-year-old had sustained serious injuries as a result of a snowmobile collision.

With the assistance of the Lynn Lake RCMP, Canadian Rangers and Shared Services Canada, a helicopter was chartered and flew up to the scene with a paramedic onboard to provide medical assistance to the injured male.

The 65-year-old male was transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The other two hunters returned home via snowmobile on the ice road.
