Elderly man missing after boat found on lake

An empty boat found adrift on Last Mountain Lake between Fox's Point and Wee Too Beach was identified as belonging to a 78-year-old man who is missing.

The man's truck and trailer were located at the boat launch, along with several of his belongings, which were found at the end of the dock, according to an RCMP release.

An initial search of the shoreline was to no avail, and the Craik and Southey RCMP and RCMP Underwater Recovery Team continue to search for the missing man, the release states.

Kevin Smith to film Moose Jaws

Billed as part of a spiritual "True North Trilogy," filmmaker Kevin Smith announced at the San Diego Comic Con that he is working on a film called Moose Jaws.

Little was revealed about the film, aside from the brief description that it will be "like Jaws, with a moose," and that it will feature a scene of a moose devouring a little girl, Slashfilm reported.

The film will follow this year's Tusk and the forthcoming Yoga Hosers.
