Durham police are for a second day searching for a 31-year-old Toronto fisherman who went missing in Lake Scugog on Monday.

Police said emergency services were called to Centre Road and Crozier Lane on Scugog Island about a boater in distress at around 5:20 p.m.

Police said Phong Vu was alone in his canoe at the time it capsized. Witnesses found the empty canoe and called police.

“The water was rough. It looks like the canoe capsized and the gentleman was not wearing a life jacket,” Sgt. Mark Glionna said

Sad to hear, especially so soon after the loss of Kevin Wong. These guys are far too young to be gone.

Be smart out there everyone, wear your PFD.

I'm fishing mainly out of a kayak so after Kevin's story I got the best PFD I could find.
I never flipped in a lake before but you never know...

Thanks FR. It was a real shocker to the family. But an eye opener at the same time.
