Fort Qu’Appelle RCMP continue search for missing boy underwater

An RCMP underwater recovery unit is part of the search for a seven-year-old boy whose mother was found dead on a beach in Fort Qu’Appelle over the weekend.

Several police boats have been combing the waters of Echo and Mission lakes near the town northeast of Regina.

A land search also continues for seven-year-old Greagan Geldenhuys, who was last seen on Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday RCMP found the body of the boy’s mother, Tamaine Geldenhuys, who was 47, on the beach near the Fort campground in Fort Qu’Appelle.

Investigators don’t suspect foul play, but believe the woman and her son were together sometime before she was discovered.

Police haven’t said whether police think the boy, who has blond hair and a slim build, may have gone into the water.
