RCMP Southey - Missing Person - Presumed Drowned
On August 1, 2014, at 7:10 p.m., Southey RCMP received a complaint that two individuals were rescued from from Last Mountain Lake near the resort village of Pelican Pointe and that a 36-year-old male was still in the water.

Shortly before 7:00 p.m., a storm was seen moving in over the lake. Strong winds created waves over 5 feet in height which swept one of the adult males and the male youth into the lake. While attempting to help bring the adult male and male youth to shore, the 36-year-old male was swept into the water. The adult male and male youth were able to get on the shore; however, the 36-year-old male is missing and presumed to be drowned. The adult male and male youth were examined on the scene by Southey EMS. They were not transported to hospital.
