Provincial police say one person is dead and another is missing following an apparent boating mishap on Lake Erie.

The OPP‘s Chatham-Kent detachment say officers responded to a report Friday morning of an overturned vessel about 100 metres from the shore of Rondeau Provincial Park.

They say a couple of hours later, at around 11 a.m., firefighters located an unresponsive person on the shoreline of the park who was later pronounced dead.
