Search on after Alberta sledder falls through ice on Yukon lake

RCMP were notified that two of three men snowmobiling west of Faro had fallen through the ice

A 36-year-old Alberta man is missing after snowmobiling on a lake in Yukon northwest of Whitehorse.

Ross River Faro RCMP were notified late Tuesday that two of three men snowmobiling 60 kilometres west of Faro had fallen through the ice, and one did not resurface.

Yukon Search and Rescue and ice rescue technicians from the Whitehorse Fire Department responded and searched the lake.

Aerial and underwater searches have not found any trace of the man.

The B.C. RCMP underwater recovery team is expected to make an attempt to recover the body later this week.

Yukon officials are warning residents to use extreme caution around rivers and lakes because they say the ice may not be as thick as expected.
