Lemay went for a ride in Whiteshell Provincial Park on February 21 and was never heard from again.

A search began with more than 50 volunteers and numerous trained search and rescue teams covering hundreds of kilometres of trails and would be called off on February 23 after evidence was found showing Lemay had been crossing a lake when he hit open water.

It was determined at the time it was too dangerous to send a dive team into the water to search for the body.
