Two other Kenora-area men missing

  • Print

Two other men from the Kenora area are missing and police believe the pair were with the man the same day his body was discovered lying on top of ice on a lake near Kenora.

Ontario Provincial Police are asking the public if they know the whereabouts of Edward Everson, 53, and Chris Mainville, 42. Unconfirmed reports say the men were with the man and a woman, who is also missing and is currently the subject of an intense search this weekend.

The two men may be able to add crucial information about what took the pair out on to the ice in the first place. They were seen with the pair on Thursday, the same day the body was discovered, OPP said in a brief update.

This weekend OPP also identified the deceased as Kenora resident Robert Kantimere, 55.

His body was found on the ice on Lake Selkirk Thursday. Lake Selkirk is about 25 kilometres north of Kenora, off Hwy. 596.

At the same time as Kantimere’s body was discovered, police started searching for Diane Otto, 43, also of Kenora.

That search saw the OPP’s Underwater Search and Recovery United called in along with the OPP’s Emergency Response Team to comb the shoreline and the water underneath the thinning ice.

As of Sunday there was no trace of Otto reported.

OPP repeated warnings to stay off lakes in the area. Ice conditions are deteriorating rapidly, due to recent warm weather and rainfall.
