The search for a missing three-year-old boy who was swept into a swollen river in southwestern Ontario has entered its sixth day.
Police say the boy went missing when his mother’s vehicle went into the Grand River near Orangeville, Ont. during heavy flooding last week.
The woman managed to pull the boy from the van, but lost her grip in the strong current.
Provincial police now are combing the area around Belwood Lake, about 13 km downstream from where the boy disappeared last Wednesday.
About two dozen officers are involved in the search, including members of the canine unit, as well as a helicopter and a police drone.
Cst. Paul Nancekivell, spokesman for the Dufferin OPP detachment, estimates as many as 500 volunteers helped with the search over the weekend.
He said the number likely is to be lower today as people get back to work, but he still expects upwards of 100 people to take part.
