Police still looking for missing canoeist

A man is missing in the French River Provincial Park after the canoe he was in capsized.  West Parry Sound OPP were called to the Recollet Falls on the French River Sunday afternoon around 1:45pm.  Police say two men and a 10-year-old boy were canoeing the river when they tipped in fast moving water and all three were sent into the water.  One of the men and the boy were wearing life jackets and were pulled out of the river with the help of bystanders, but the other man, who was not wearing a life jacket, was unable to be found.  The OPP completed a search of the shoreline and the water while the Underwater Search and Rescue Unit (USRU) is continuing to search for the missing man.
