Missing hunters found dead in Coteau-du-Lac

The bodies of two men in their 20s missing since yesterday afternoon in Coteau-du-Lac have been found.

The Sureté du Quebec says the men took a canoe out on the St. Lawrence while hunting. 

Their relatives raised the red flags when they never returned home, which is when search crews found the boat in the icy water.

At one point Wednesday morning firefighters received reports lights were seen on an island nearby, some residents even reporting what could have been gunshots. After checking the island it turned out to be two other hunters, not related to the missing pair.

It is not yet known how the men died.
