The bodies of three people missing and presumed drowned in Slocan Lake, B.C. have been found, a team of underwater recovery specialists hired by their families believe.

An initial 10-day search following a May 10 canoeing mishap failed to turn up Jule Wiltshire, Skye Donnet and Hayden Kyle.

Ralston & Associates were privately hired and told authorities they’ve found the trio in roughly 500 feet of water. A Mountie dive team has been called back in to assist in their recovery Wednesday.

Lily Harmer-Taylor, 19, was the fourth member of the group, which was making its way between Rosebery and New Denver, B.C.

She was found unconscious on the partially submerged canoe and died soon after in a hospital in New Denver.
