On Sunday, August 18th, after an afternoon of fishing off the banks of the Ottawa River near Quyon, Quebec, a 3 year old girl disappeared while wading near a sand bar. Her father immediately went out to search for her. Both drowned. The girl's body was quickly recovered, but the father's body was still missing. On request from MRC des Collines Police Dept and SAR Global 1, OVSARDA deployed two search dog teams and one boat driver to the scene that same evening.
The dogs were deployed immediately and both indicated the presence of scent approximately 60' off shore. Divers from SG1 investigated and located the missing man where the dogs had indicated, at a depth of approximately 40'.
