The search will continue this week for the body of a 30-year-old man who is believed to have drowned near a dam in the Assiniboine River in Kamsack.

Ernest Severight, from Cote First Nation, went into the river at the Riverside Golf Club last Tuesday afternoon.

Police say strong currents around the dam and poor visibility underwater are hampering the effort.

Searchers have been using sonar, visual and underwater searches.

A search and rescue plane is being used over the next few days for a wider search area.
