Clearwater man drowns in Adams Lake

BC Coroners Service confirms identity of a man who died following a boating incident

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a boating incident on Adams Lake near Chase.  He was Michael David Treseng, aged 56, from Clearwater.

Treseng was reportedly camping with his 22-year-old nephew near Refuge Bay on Adams Lake, about 30 kilometres north of Chase. In the early morning hours of May 2, they decided to go night-fishing and set out in a 3.5 metre aluminium boat when the wind blew up and the boat capsized.

The nephew was able to swim approximately 100 m to shore, but Treseng failed to complete the swim.  Neither were wearing life jackets.

Shuswap Search and Rescue did a shore search and a water surface search Saturday afternoon, while an RCMP Underwater Recovery Team searched the lake bottom Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

The dive team were able to make the recovery on the morning of May 3.

The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.
