Missing Saskatchewan Mushroom Picker Lois Chartrand Found Dead: What Happened?
Lois Chartrand, an experienced mushroom picker, was last seen in a heavily wooded region located around 32 kilometers northeast of Smeaton and close to the Hanson Lake Road. The last time Chartrand was seen was on August 4 about eleven in the morning when he was mushroom hunting northeast of Smeaton in Saskatchewan, according to the police.
In order to go mushroom picking in the forest, Chartrand and a friend drove a quad into the path that led into the woodland. They were able to lose visual contact with one another while they were gathering mushrooms.
According to the Saskatchewan RCMP, the search was carried out with the assistance of a number of police K9 units, a helicopter belonging to the Alberta RCMP, and the Saskatoon Police Service. In addition, there is the Saskatchewan Association of Volunteers in Search and Rescue, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency, Heli Recon, and the Civilian Air Search and Rescue Association. All of these organizations are located in Saskatchewan.
The search in the woods was carried out with the assistance of other people from the neighborhood. In addition, local people and business owners contributed by sending food and materials to those helping with the search. Cell phone coverage was not available at the site where Chartrand was last seen, although the RCMP had their most recent radio contact with him on August 5 at around six in the morning. In the aftermath of that, they were unable to get in touch with Chartrand.
Tragically, the body of Lois Chartrand was found by rescuers on Sunday in the woods about a kilometer away from the location where she was last seen.
