Search for missing snowmobiler halted

The Iroquois Falls OPP has suspended its ground, water and aerial search aspects of its investigation into a missing 20 year old snowmobiler, who was reported missing on Monday December 10th, 2007. Matthieu Laflamme, 20, of Val Gagne, failed to return home from a snowmobiling excursion in the Iroquois Falls area on Dec. 10 , 2007.
A massive ground, marine and air search was undertaken by the South Porcupine OPP, OPP Emergency Response Team members and an OPP dive team. Despite the comprehensive and exhaustive search efforts, Laflamme has not been located. As well, no significant findings were made to warrant the continuation of the search at this time..
The search has been effectively suspended pending any new developments in the investigation.
Ontario Provincial Police say all reasonable efforts and resources have been deployed and exhausted by the OPP in a comprehensive effort to locate and recover the missing man. This missing person investigation remains open and renewed search efforts may be undertaken in the spring.
Police say the family of Mr. Laflamme has been notified of these recent developments.
