RCMP have confirmed a woman who went missing while foraging for mushrooms has been found deceased.
On Sunday, searchers found Lois Chartrand in a forested area about one kilometre from where she was last seen. Her family has been notified.
Chartrand was last seen on Aug. 4 while picking mushrooms on the northeast side of the 30-km mark of the Hanson Lake Highway.
Police said they had contacted Chartrand through radio but later lost contact.
Saskatchewan RCMP said they’re thankful to all the agencies and people involved in the search efforts including Alberta RCMP, Saskatoon Police Service, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency, Search and Rescue Saskatchewan Association of Volunteers (SARSAV) Civilian Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA) and Heli Recon.
They’re also grateful to the volunteer searchers as well as community members and Lois’s loved ones, who — despite the stressful circumstances — ensured all searchers were fed and supported.
