UPDATED: Missing boater’s body found

The body of a man who went missing on Sylvan Lake after his boat was overturned was recovered Saturday morning.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

A Facebook tribute page for Jason Groulx was created Sunday morning, calling on friends and family to share their memories of the 43-year-old.

According to his Facebook profile, Groulx owned and operated Gasoline Alley Rat Rods. They represented Team Canada at the International Rat Rod Build off, winning the Rat Rod Build off with a 1930s gangster themed vehicle.

Three others were in the boat when it overturned, including a 10-year-old boy, but those three were able to stay with the boat with the help of their personal floating devices and eventually swam to shore.

Sylvan Lake RCMP thanked all those who assisted in searching for the man since Aug. 13. RCMP will not provide any more updates on the incident.
