A man and a woman in northern Saskatchewan who were reported missing earlier this week have been found dead.

RCMP say divers have recovered the body of the 55-year-old woman inside a truck that was submerged in the Canoe River.

The discovery came after the 53-year-old man was found dead in the river, outside the truck, late Wednesday.

The pair - both from Beauval -were reported missing around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Mounties say they had received a report late Tuesday morning of a possible vehicle in the river near kilometre 130 on Highway 155, where a large hole was found in the ice.

There's no word on what led to the deaths, but police say there is no indication of criminal involvement.
