UPDATE: Missing Delta man’s body found in Alice Lake

Alice Lake closed until further notice, campground remains open

The body of a missing 20-year-old Delta man was found at Alice Lake after hours of searching.

At approximately 8:15 p.m. on Wednesday (June 20), Squamish RCMP responded to a report of a man screaming in the water at Alice Lake.

Squamish RCMP, Search and Rescue, Fire Services and B.C. Ambulance Service attended, but ground, air and water searches were unable to find the missing man.

According to RCMP, the Delta man was swimming with friends when he went into distress close to the shore, on the southwest side of the lake. His friends and bystanders both began to search for him, and immediately called for help.

The search resumed in the morning, said Corporal Sascha Banks, and Squamish RCMP brought in the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team (URT). The body was found around 1 p.m.

“At this time we are informing the public that Alice Lake is closed until further notice, but the campground remains open,” Banks said.

RCMP has contacted the man’s family, but is not releasing his name at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Squamish RCMP at 604-892-6100.
