MISSOULA — Search and rescue crews have now recovered the bodies of two kayakers who were reported missing on Swan Lake on Thursday, April 14, 2022.

911 dispatchers received a report that two kayakers had capsized about 1,000 feet from shore during high winds and that they were trying to swim to shore but went under the water.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell says the body of a female was recovered shortly after 5:15 p.m. on Sunday in 86 feet of water.
