A Mississauga house painter who made appearances on the popular television show, Holmes on Homes, died while scuba diving alone off the coast of Nova Scotia.

Police say John (Craig) Lowe, 41, was reported missing at 10 p.m. Saturday while diving alone in the Dingwall-Aspy Bay area of Cape Breton.

Lowe’s body was found 50 metres from his boat at the bottom of the bay just before midnight, after a search involving the Ingonish Beach RCMP, the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, the local coast Guard auxiliary and members of the community. The boat was about 300 metres from shore.
