Volunteers from Grandmother’s Bay and Stanley Mission continue their search of the North Saskatchewan River near Prince Albert for the body of Tim Charlette.

Police believe Charlette may be near where the body of Beatrice Adam was found on Oct. 12.

The volunteers are using sonar equipment recently purchased by the Lac La Ronge Indian Band to search the river.

Leon Charles, one of the volunteers using the equipment, says they have been searching since Wednesday.

“Today, we are going to do a physical check on the river, all the way down to Wapiti Bridge, the Grondin Bridge – that’s where we’re going to get dropped off this morning and then we’re going to come up and the people from Stanley they’re going to be going down the river,” he says. “So, we’re trying to cover as much water as we can today.”

The family of Tim Charlette said they are grateful for the support they have received and the effort of the search teams.

Robert Charlette, Tim’s Father, says it has been a difficult time.

“My son is somewhere, I don’t know whereabouts, but he’s in the water and hopefully we’ll find him soon before freeze up,” he says.

The volunteers are working in conjunction with the Prince Albert police and fire departments in the search.
