An OPP Emergency Response Team, with assistance from the Dryden and Fort Frances OPP, are investigating a missing person’s incident on the Manitou chain of lakes.
Dryden OPP Sgt. Michelle Teeple reported this morning that police received a report of the missing person early yesterday evening and have been searching the remote location where he was last seen.
Police would not reveal the identity of the missing person but the Times has learned it is Ted Davis of Fort Frances.
He reportedly went through the ice while plowing a road.
“There’s not much we can release right now. There is a missing person investigation we are undertaking, and it’s still pretty early,” Sgt. Teeple noted.
“Once we have some concrete information, we will be putting out a press release.
“We’ll see what today brings,” Sgt. Teeple later added.
“Because of the remoteness and those issues, it’s a hurry up-and-wait pattern for us, too.”
