The RCMP tells Castanet that despite COSAR standing down their efforts, RCMP divers are continuing efforts to recover the body of the man, presumed to have drowned.

Despite an extensive search, crews have been unable to locate the body of the man, who is presumed drowned.
 
The RCMP Underwater Recovery Team spent much of Sunday and Monday attempting to locate the body and they are continuing their efforts on Tuesday as well.
