GREGOIRE LAKE- Search efforts continue in Gregoire Lake for the 16 year old boy who went missing on September 1.

Members of the Gregoire Lake Reserve and Fort McMurray 468 First Nation, have contacted Compass Geomatics, a surveying and mapping company, from Red Deer to assist in the search.

The team is using special equipment on their boat, and although it was snowing yesterday, they were out on the water, analyzing the results on their equipment and marking their maps.

Today, they have transferred the equipment onto the Anzac Fire Department boat. 

The Western Cadaver Dog Association team from Calgary has also identified areas of interest to the Wood Buffalo RCMP and to Compass Geomatics.

Boat patrols on Gregoire Lake will continue throughout the week.
