Body of eldery man recovered at Mirror Lake

The body of 73-year-old Randolph Peter (Randy) Lundblad who was reported missing in Mirror Lake was located by the RCMP.

At approximately 12:15 p.m. Monday, August 19, the body of 73-year-old Randolph Peter (Randy) Lundblad who was reported missing in Mirror Lake was located by the RCMP Dive Team.

Randy Lundblad had ridden his bicycle to the lake near Kaslo in the early afternoon on Aug. 18. He was seen diving into the lake and swam around for a short period of time (approximately 3-5 minutes). Witnesses reported that a faint call for help was heard and the elderly male was observed to be in distress. Two people tried to help, but weren’t able to reach him before he had gone under the water. He did not come back to the surface.

Mr. Lundblad’s body was found in approximately 45 feet of water, close to where he was last seen. The recovery proved more difficult than expected as the bottom of the lake is covered in a significant layer of mud, making visibility an issue.

Foul play is not suspected and the case will be turned over to the BC Coroners Service.
