Emergency crews responded to the call of two people falling through the ice on Bass Lake around 5:30 Saturday afternoon.
The other person was rescued. According to police, Christine-Bourgeois was last seen being towed behind a snowmobile while on a toboggan on Bass Lake when he fell through the ice.
