BURLINGTON, ON.  A pile of clothing sitting on sand at the Beachway Park led Halton Regional Police to begin an investigation and a search in the immediate area.

Clothing was found in a pile in Beachway Park – police searched land and water – no body recovered and no missing report filed.

Along with clothing there was some personal property as well but nothing to identify the owner.

The call came into the police at approximately 10:30 a.m. this morning.  The clothing was identified as that of a male.

Officers immediately began a search of the shoreline and called in the Halton Regional Police marine unit to search the lake.  They were assisted by members of the Burlington Fire Department, the Hamilton Marine Unit, the Canadian Coast Guard and the Halton Police K9 Unit.

At this time, the land search has been concluded but the search of the Lake is continuing.  A body has not been recovered and there is no missing persons report.
