Prince Albert police are utilizing sonar equipment to search for Tim Charlette.

The equipment has been loaned by the Lac La Ronge Indian Band.

Charlette was reported missing on Oct. 11 and is believed to be in the North Saskatchewan River near where the body of Beatrice Adam was found.

Police say Charlette was with Adam on the day of their disappearance.

Adam’s body was discovered on Oct. 12.

Leon Charles, one of the volunteers helping police with the sonar equipment, says they began their search yesterday.

“We have a start beside scanner, an underwater sub and sonar,” he says. “Right now we are searching where (Adam) was found and going back and forth right there and then we will be scanning the shores further down river.”

Charles says the sonar should give them a clear indication of the location of Charlette’s body.

Police have also used boats and aircraft in the search.
