Three feared drowned
Late Saturday afternoon, the Thunder Bay OPP received a call about a possible drowning in the area of the Silver Harbour boat launch on Lake Superior.
Police arrived and were advised that Kevin Spade, 32, of Sioux Lookout and Marlene Fox, 26, of Big Trout Lake First Nation, had jumped from a cliff in the area and began having difficulty trying to exit the water due to wave action.
She succumbed to her injuries yesterday evening in hospital.
The male was not located.
OPP divers were on the scene today to begin searching the water for the second victim.
Then early Saturday evening, Thunder Bay OPP received a call about a possible drowning on the Kaministiqua River in the area of Forbes River Road.

He had not been wearing a life jacket.
Police continued to search yesterday with negative results.
