OPP canine unit finds missing Manitoulin Island man 

By Rosalind Russell – A Manitoulin Island man is back home thanks to the Manitoulin OPP, canine units, and volunteers. 

The OPP says officers were called out to search for a Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory resident on Monday and the K9 units tracked him over 22 kilometres before a OPP helicopter crew finally spotted and rescued him. 

The man was hyperthermic after spending a night in wet and very cold conditions but has since recovered fully.
