A Yellowknife boater who was reported overdue last week was found injured at a remote cabin, police say.
In a news release on Tuesday, RCMP say the man was expected back on Thursday evening. A search began on Friday after he did not return.
Police say the man was believed to be at a cabin near the east arm of Great Slave Lake. An aerial search by the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA) found the man on Friday, apparently immobilized and "flagging a red object," the release says.
A helicopter was then sent to retrieve the man. Police say he was taken to hospital in Yellowknife, suffering from a non-life threatening injury.
Yellowknife RCMP is reminding people to carry a communications device when travelling on water or land, and to leave a plan with a friend or relative, including an expected time of return.
