Police say conditions were poor due to spring weather and there was concern the machines had broken through the ice.

Snowmobile tracks were reported going into open water by Grandmother’s Bay search-and-rescue members.

Police say the bodies of one woman and one man were found in the water on Monday and an RCMP Underwater Recovery Team found the body of the second woman on Tuesday afternoon.
