Our son, Samuel, went missing while swimming in the Ottawa River on 22 June when he became caught in a section of rapids. He has been located and has unfortunately passed. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Ontario Provincial Police, the Whitewater Region Fire Department, the military’s Search and Rescue personnel, and the Ottawa Valley paddling community who we know have been searching day and night for Samuel. Our thanks also go to Quebec Hydro for assisting the search by restricting their dam operations. Thank you for finding our son. We have received a flood of support from our home community, Ottawa Valley and right across Canada and beyond which has meant a great deal and are very grateful.
 
We are asking please for privacy during this difficult time.
