Ontario Provincial Police were still looking for two individuals Monday after three people broke through the ice while fishing on Charleston Lake just before 5 p.m. Sunday.
One person managed to get out of the freezing water on their own, police said following the incident that took place just north of Lansdowne, which is about 150 kilometres outside of Ottawa, close to Gananoque.

The Leeds County detachment is investigating while the search continues for the two people.
Anyone with information about the missing people was asked to contact the OPP non-emergency line at 1 (888) 310-1122.
Police also urged the public to stay off the ice. “No ice is safe ice, especially during this extraordinarily mild winter,” the release read.
