A 19-year-old Southend man is dead after falling through the ice on his snowmobile early New Year’s Day.


The RCMP say it appears the accident happened sometime before 2:30 Sunday morning.


The RCMP’s dive team was called in to search for the victim’s body after snowmobile tracks were discovered that led to some open water.


The man’s body was recovered later that evening by volunteer searchers and the RCMP.


The Mounties are still investigating the incident, but Cpl. Brian Jones expects many aspects of this accident will never be known because of a lack of witnesses.


The victim’s name has not been released.
