OPP SEARCH FOR 9-YEAR-OLD BOY IN LAKE ERIE NEAR NANTICOKE: 

Body located and recovered                             

On Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at approximately 1:19 p.m., OPP were contacted by a resident who observed something in the lake and contacted police immediately.

An OPP Marine Unit member attended the area in a vessel and located the body of 9-year-old Alex OTTLEY, east of where he was last seen, and approximately 40 metres from the shoreline.

A post mortem is scheduled for March 25, 2020 in Toronto.

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Haldimand County Detachment along with the OPP Underwater Search and Recovery Unit (USRU) have completed a search for a 9-year-old boy who had fallen into the waters of Lake Erie off the shoreline of Peacock Point in Nanticoke, Haldimand County, Ontario.

On Saturday February 15, 2020 at 4:35 p.m., OPP, Haldimand County Fire Services and Haldimand County paramedics responded to Peacock Point where it was reported two children had fallen into Lake Erie.ETRE

OPP learned that an 8-year-old male and a 9-year-old male were on the ice edge when a wave swept them into the lake.

A 10-year-old female who was with the boys, ran up to the roadway and flagged down a vehicle for help. A man and woman from the vehicle went out onto the ice to the water’s edge and were able to rescue the 8-year-old male.

The 9-year-old male, identified as Alex OTTLEY, did not resurface.

OPP conducted a search and recovery operation, which continued for 11 days, utilizing USRU members, OPP helicopter, OPP Emergency Response Team, OPP Canine Unit and uniform members, however, the body was not recovered.

The 4Brant community extend our thoughts and prayers to  the family and friends of Alex Ottley and  recognize the samaritan couple that were there to help Alex’s other two friends prevent even greater tragedy that fateful day.
