LITTLE GRAND RAPIDS, Man. — RCMP say they have found two bodies in a remote lake in eastern Manitoba where a plane went down last month.

The float plane carrying three men crashed into Family Lake near Little Grand Rapids on Oct. 26.

The body of a 49-year old passenger was recovered a few days later.

Police say the body of the pilot, 39-year-old Jonathan Friesen with Blue Water Aviation, was recovered on Tuesday night.

A second passenger, a 42-year-old man, has been located and efforts are underway to recover his body.

RCMP have said witnesses saw the plane clip a tree before it went into the water.
