A man in his forties has been reported missing after he fell into a lake near Gracefield, Que. Saturday night.

Police said the man and a woman were sailing on a personal watercraft along Lake Cayamant when it capsized around 8 p.m.

The woman was rescued by a nearby boat, but the man remains missing, Sgt. Stéphane Tremblay, a spokesperson with Sûreté du Québec, told Radio-Canada. 

Locals and firefighters searched for the man until 1 a.m. Sunday, and then continued later that morning. 

“We have the Sûreté du Québec’s marine patrol boats, as well as the Sûreté divers, who are on their way, to try to locate the man who is still missing,” Tremblay said in a French-language interview.
