GRUNDY LAKE PROVINCIAL PARK, Ont. -- Provincial police say a Whitby, Ont., man who went missing on a visit to Grundy Lake Provincial Park this weekend has drowned.
Police say 35-year-old Jean-Marc Daga was swimming to a floating raft with another man Saturday evening when he went under.
They say Daga was visiting the beach roughly 80 kilometres south of Sudbury with a large group of friends from the Toronto area.
Several friends and nearby campers tried to find him and called emergency crews for help.
A provincial search-and-rescue team eventually found Daga near the raft.
