Search continues for missing teens at Nicola Lake

A search for two missing Langley teens in Nicola Lake is moving slowly due to lake conditions.

"It's too murky, too dark down there to dive," said Merritt RCMP Const. Tracy Dunsmore. "They can't see two feet in front of their face, so they've been using Sonar."

The search for the 17 and 18-year-olds began on Sunday night southwest of Kamloops after they were reported missing by family members.

"The dive team has been out all week," Dunsmore said. "Everybody's just kind of waiting for the divers."

Personal items belonging to the teens were located at their campsite on the lake, and a canoe was found overturned.

The boys were nowhere to be found.

The lake is known for it's windy conditions, often attracting recreational parasailers.

The divers are expected to continue searching until at least the end of the week.

"We're still searching," Dunsmore said.
