The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identities of two men who died following a boating incident at Kalamalka Lake Tuesday.

The two men were Fredrick Basil Marshall, aged 50, and Albert James Castanelli, aged 47, both from Vernon.

Marshall and Castanelli were on a camping trip on the east side of Kalamalka Lake in an area accessible only by boat.

On the morning of May 22, a hiker in a remote area of the lake found camping equipment washed up on a beach. The hiker contacted the authorities who then began a search of the area.

Marshall and Castanelli were found in separate areas near Cosens Bay. A car-top aluminium boat also was found washed up nearby.

The BC Coroners Service and the RCMP continue to investigate these deaths.

The families of both deceased have been notified of the deaths.
