EABAMETOONG FN – On Friday, Ontario Provincial Police divers recovered the body of a missing forty-eight-year-old Eabametoong First Nation man. Albert Boyce was lost when his snowmobile went through the ice on a lake while assisting in a rescue of a missing man during a blizzard.
Mr. Boyce was a civilian who was helping the Canadian Rangers in the rescue effort.
This was the first time that a civilian was lost while assisting the Canadian Rangers.
The community, and Mr. Boyce’s friends and family are mourning his passing.
He was headed home, the day he went missing, which sadly was reportedly his birthday, to a party to celebrate. A party unfortunately that he was never able to make.
From NetNewsledger, our thoughts and prayers are to Eabametoong FN, and to Mr. Boyce’s family and many friends.
