Emergency crews continue to work to find a man who disappeared in Kinsmen Lake.

Strathmore RCMP were called to the area on Thursday night at approximately 7:10 p.m. for a report of a man who was struggling in the lake and disappeared below the surface. 

According to a news release from RCMP, people who were nearby attempted to help; however, they were unsuccessful. 

RCMP and Strathmore Fire Department were on scene during the late evening, along with divers, but they were not able to find the man due to poor visibility issues.
