Recovery effort continues at Sierra lake for boy whose canoe overturned

A search continues at Stampede Reservoir in Sierra County for a boy who apparently drowned when he fell from his canoe.

The 11-year-old boy was out on the lake on Tuesday in a canoe with a 14-year-old boy when the vessel overturned. The older boy, who was wearing a life jacket, was rescued.

The younger boy, who was not wearing a personal flotation device, went under and did not surface.

A search by Sierra County deputies has continued since Tuesday. They have been assisted by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team and Marine Patrol and various other agencies.
