Ontario Provincial Police reported that dive teams located the body of 59-year-old Dennis Todd at about 2 p.m. Sunday. Todd was a Gunflint Lodge fishing guide.

Todd was presumed drowned Thursday night, after he and another woman went for a day trip fishing on Northern Lights Lake, in Trafalgar Bay.

The woman, who was found alone and wet on an island by another angler Thursday evening, told authorities she and the man were thrown from the boat when it hit something in the water in the northwest corner of Trafalgar Bay.

The woman was wearing a lifejacket and was able to swim to an island, but Todd was not wearing a lifejacket. Ontario Provincial Police said Todd was from Jefferson City, Missouri.
