56-year-old John Dubois went missing while snowmobiling in the area on December 18. Authorities have been searching for him since then, but have called off searches on multiple occasions. A search for his body was suspended there on January 9 due to low visibility in the water.

Dubois lived in a nearby neighborhood right on the pond.
