RCMP | Five missing teens found safe in Saskatchewan

David Giles | Global News
RCMP have confirmed they’ve located the five missing teens in northern Saskatchewan.

The five people observed by Civilian Air Search and Rescue (CARASA) on the shoreline of Malcolm Island at 12:50 p.m. Monday have been identified as the five youth reported missing to Southend RCMP last week.

Due to weather, a rescue boat picked up the youth on one side of island and transported them to the other side, where there is a small airstrip. CASARA was able to land at that airstrip and take them in two trips back to Southend, Sask.

They were all safely back in the community around 4:50 p.m.

All are said to be in good health, but are being taken to the Arthur Morin Memorial Health Center in the community as a precaution.

RCMP are still gathering details surrounding the incident.

Malcolm Island is located approximately 10 kilometres south of the community of Kinoosao near the Manitoba border.

The five, one female and four males between 13 and 17, were reported missing last Thursday after they left Southend, Sask on Nov. 4 with two aluminum boats to go moose hunting at Reindeer Lake. They were reported missing after failing to return home on Nov. 6.
