Police are searching for the body of an Alberta man who is presumed to have drowned in Shuswap Lake.
Shuswap Search and Rescue told Global News that it received a call on Thursday afternoon of a man who disappeared while swimming out to a dock at Canoe Beach near Salmon Arm.
Search and Rescue believe the man is a 22-year-old from Edmonton.
Both Shuswap Search and Rescue and Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue kept boats on the lake until approximately 9 p.m.
A search and rescue spokesperson said the water was apparently quite murky, and sonar and underwater cameras failed to find the body.
RCMP are continuing the recovery effort, while search and rescue say they have been told to stand down.
