RCMP says it has no plans to search northern Saskatchewan lake for remains of Brady and Halkett – MBC Network Radio Online

The RCMP says it will not be conducting a dive in a northern Saskatchewan lake in search of the remains of Jim Brady and Absolom Halkett.

Métis activist Brady and his friend Halkett went missing in the Foster Lake area, about 120 kilometres northwest of La Ronge, in June 1967.

Earlier this month, a search team provided the RCMP with underwater images and video of the area containing anomalies they thought could be the remains of the two men.

However, RCMP spokesperson Corporal Rob King says there is simply not enough evidence there to justify a dive.

“The images that show seem to be more silt than any type of human remains or build up,” he says. “And given the time frame that has gone through, the odds of the silt showing something underneath are next to none.”
