A tragic end to the search for a missing boater on Chemainus Lake.

The body of a 22 year old man was pulled from the water Wednesday afternoon.

He had gone missing earlier in the day when the canoe he was in flipped over.

Police say the man pulled from the water grew up in Duncan but some reports were that he now lives in Nanaimo.

The other canoeist, a 22 year old Nanaimo man, made it back to shore safely.

No name has been released.
