Lac du Bonnet RCMP have recovered the body of a man who went missing after trying to swim and recover his boat on the Winnipeg River.

The 38-year-old Fisher Branch man swam out to his boat in Whiteshell Provincial Park on August 27, but never returned. Police say the man’s watercraft was blown away from Strawberry Island.

His body was found September 7 on the shoreline of the Winnipeg River, according to police.

An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.

RCMP continue to investigate.
