Three people have drowned after a boat capsized on Reindeer Lake.

Thompson RCMP say a boat left Kinoosao, Saskatchewan on Monday destined for Brochet, Manitoba, but never arrived.

On Tuesday afternoon, an overturned boat was found near a small island on the lake and a 28-year-old woman was pulled from the water.

She was taken to hospital and informed officers of three other passengers on the boat.

A search party was formed and soon located the bodies of a 50-year-old man, a 49-year-old woman, and a 42-year-old man. All from Brochet, Manitoba.

According to the RCMP, life jackets were not being used and the weather conditions were reported to be windy with rough water.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Reindeer Lake straddles the border of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
