On November 25, 1999 at approximately 10:30 a.m. the Gypsumville R.C.M.P. detachment received a report that an aircraft was in distress over Lake Winnipeg near Reindeer Island. The aircraft, a single engine Cherokee 140, had three people on board; the pilot and two passengers. The pilot had indicated that the engine had seized and that he was trying to make it to Reindeer Island. He then stated that he was going down in to the water. Two R.C.M.P. Twin Otters happened to be in the area and also heard the distress call. Both aircraft's went to the area and commenced an immediate search for the downed aircraft. Air Search and Rescue also deployed a Hercules aircraft from Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was not possible to search the lake by boat as there was too much ice on the lake. The bodies of SINCLAIR, MENZIES and MITCHELL were never recovered. All three are presumed dead due to drowning or from the impact of the crash. Foul play is not suspected.
