Spear-fisherman missing near Valleyfield
Provincial police have launched a search in the waters of the St. Lawrence River off Valleyfield for a man who disappeared while trying his hand at spear-fishing Saturday morning.
The man's family reported him missing yesterday, a day after he failed to return from his excursion.
Police spokeswoman Audrey Anne Bilodeau says police found the man's car in a parking lot on Monseigneur Langlois Boulevard yesterday afternoon and some personal belongings near the shore some time later.
A heliocopter was called in late yesterday to help in the search. Today, officers will be searching the shoreline and will have a boat out to search the water.
