Community Member Assists Police In Finding Male With A Cane Who Ventured Onto The Ice

KAWARTHA LAKES-The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is thanking community members for assisting them with locating an elderly male who ventured onto the ice.

Officers received a call from a concerned citizen who had observed an elderly male walking on the ice with his cane on February 2, 2021 at 2:59pm. Police began searching the Lindsay Street North area of the Scugog River where the man was last seen. 

Access to the river in the area was blocked, making it difficult for officers to find any trace of the male. While scouring the area police spoke with a very helpful community member, Mr. Scott Moggach who was in the area practicing flying his new drone. Moggach, offered to help and was able to assist officers in locating tracks in the snow, which led police to the male’s residence where he was located safe and sound.

Thank you, to the citizens of Kawartha Lakes who regularly step up and assist in making our community a safer place to live, work and play.” said police.
