On Thursday around 4:30 p.m., Atikokan OPP officers responded to a call for assistance on Marmion Lake.

A 63-year-old Missouri man, who had entered the water to retrieve a boat, subsequently went underwater and did not surface.

The victim was identified as Nicolas Fox of Ballwin.

A post-mortem examination was to be conducted today in Thunder Bay.
