The body of a man who went missing in early August has been found.

On August 7, RCMP were called to the Spray Lakes area after a report that a man had submerged under the water while trying to save his dog.

Search efforts were immediately undertaken, with Kananaskis Emergency Services, Alberta Conservation Officers, Canmore Fire Rescue, Alberta Fish and Wildlife Officers, the Central Alberta Rescue Diving Society, and the RCMP assisting.

On September 25 at around 12:30 p.m., the Central Alberta Rescue Diving Society located the man's body.

"Our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of the deceased," reads a release from the RCMP.

Canmore RCMP offered thanks to everyone who assisted in the search.
