    Canada - Matt Zellen, 40 & Earl Zellen, 71, Debawnt Lake NU, 29 July 2013

    The story and many pictures, at the Daily Mail link:

    Mystery of father and son fishermen who disappeared on camping trip in rural Canadian forests over a week ago

    • Matt Zellen, 40, was traveling with his 71-year-old father Earl when they disappeared and were last seen on July 29
    • Police searched the remote area where they were last seen fishing for two days before saying that they are now presumed dead
    • Their fishing boat was found 8 miles south of the lodge where they were staying, with both life preservers on board
    • Lodge staff says that the men did not want a guide because they had previously visited the region a year before for Earl's birthday

    I could see one going overboard and the other jumping in to save him... ( ya, throwing a life preserver would have been smart but in a panic situation ...?) I dont think it is anything but what it seems to be.. a terrible accident...

    I'm inclined to agree on the information given. I could probably could up with various wild theories but I try to keep it simple and not get carried away without good reason.

    I'm no lover of the Daily Mail but I do like how they jump on a lot of these cases.
