Search on for missing man

UPDATE 3:30 P.M. AUG 28

Police continue to search for a 64-year-old Alberta man whose boat was found unoccupied on Okanagan Lake Tuesday night.
 
Shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday, West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a collision between watercrafts on Okanagan Lake.

A local couple were operating their boat in the middle of the lake near Kalamoir Regional Park when they impacted an unoccupied Malibu boat.

The craft did not have any lights turned on and simply appeared to be adrift. Upon closer examination of the vessel, police located some personal effects of Brian Daryl Lakevold of St. Albert, Alberta along with the ignition keys for the boat indicating that he was possibly missing.
 
Investigators have since confirmed with his family that Lakevold is missing.
 
The search for Lakevold continues and investigators are appealing to the public for their help in establishing a time line of his whereabouts Tuesday afternoon in order to better focus the search. Specifically, police are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen him or his maroon and white Malibu LXI after 2:30 p.m. on August 26, up until his boat was found unoccupied that evening.
