Sudbury woman killed when snowmobile goes through ice


The body of a 29-year-old Sudbury nurse was recovered Wednesday night from a lake near Parry Sound after her snowmobile went through the ice, police say.

Emergency crews were called to Oastler Lake in Seguin Township around 9 p.m. after 29-year-old Heather Lockwood didn't return to a planned location, Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release Thursday morning.

She was last seen on a motorize snow vehicle and tracks led search crews to open water, police said.

Lockwood is confirmed deceased.
