POLSON - The Lake County sheriff says the bodies of an adult male and female were pulled from the icy waters of Flathead Lake on Wednesday afternoon, near the south shore of Wildhorse Island.
Both were wearing life jackets.
Sheriff Lucky Larson says the bodies were found after Polson authorities were called on to conduct a welfare check. He wouldn’t say what prompted the check or who called it in.
The sheriff says a canoe was found near the bodies.
The bodies were taken to the state crime lab in Missoula for autopsies.
