The body of another missing hunter from Fort Chipewyan has been recovered.

RCMP say just before 5:00 p.m., Monday the man’s body was pulled from the Rocher River.

This is the second of four missing men to be found. Search crews recovered the first body on Sunday.

Cpl. Chris Warren tells Mix News the men were found in close proximity to each other.

The Edmonton Medical Examiners’ Office will be conducting an autopsy, however, no date has been set.

The four hunters first left Fort Chipewyan on Sunday, the 23, on the Rocher River and were heading to an area known as Devil’s Gate.

RCMP, with the assistance of the E Division Underwater Recovery Team (British Columbia), K Division Air Services, along with the various partners, including Parks Canada, continue the search for the two remaining men.
