The search continues today for the pilot of a helicopter that crashed Monday near Gillam.
RCMP spokesman Cpl. Miles Hiebert said the RCMP's dive team had begun the search on Wednesday at the site where the helicopter's wreckage was located at Gull Lake, about 23 kilometres west of Gillam.
"The underwater recovery team spent the day there (Wednesday) and will be returning to the site today," Hiebert said.
Some material from the helicopter has washed up on shore and is floating in the lake but it is believed the rest of the wreckage is under water, he said.
The pilot and helicopter were reported overdue after failing to arrive for a scheduled pickup Monday after leaving Gillam around 4:30 p.m. that day.
The wreckage of the Bell 206 helicopter belonging to Custom Helicopters of St. Andrews was located on Tuesday around noon by a military search and rescue team.
