Updated Oct. 5, 2020: Ridge Meadows RCMP called off a search for the man reported missing Oct. 1, citing difficult underwater terrain and a lack results from a sonar scan of Alouette Lake.
A search is underway for a man who went missing Thursday evening after losing control of a Sea-Doo on Alouette Lake in Maple Ridge, B.C.
Brian Moffat with Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue said the team responded to a call Thursday from the B.C. Ambulance Service about a potential drowning at the north end of the lake.
Moffat said rescuers drove their boat to the north end and found the people who had made the call.
Crews learned a man and a woman were riding the Sea-Doo together when they lost control and were thrown off.
The woman was rescued by a nearby boater, but the man wasn't found.
Moffat said a crew searched the water until 1 a.m. and resumed their search Friday at the request of RCMP.
An RCMP dive team will continue the search Saturday, Moffat said.
RCMP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
