An RCMP dive team will start the grim task of searching for the bodies of three local youth presumed drowned in Slocan Lake Monday morning.
This after a canoe the three males and a young woman were in capsized early Saturday evening.
The woman was found unconscious in the canoe and died later in hospital.
RCMP Sergeant Darryl Little says search efforts Sunday were not fruitful.
Eight divers are expected to search the very cold water today not far off the New Denver Bay.
The missing youth are 15 year old Jule Wiltshire-Padfield, 18 year old Skye Donnet and 21 year old Hayden Kyle.
The name of the woman who died has not been formally released.
