Investigators use GPS from Leclair’s boat to find missing woman

Local News

Investigators are using the GPS from the Leclair’s boat to narrow the search for a missing Albion woman in Lake Erie.

Pennsylvania State Police are trying to pinpoint where the boat piloted by Christopher Leclair was when his wife went overboard.  Using the GPS from the boat, the search teams can narrow down the search grid.  Karen Leclair, reported missing on Sunday by her husband after he said she’d fallen off of the boat and in to Lake Erie.

Video Surveillance cameras from the Port Authority show Christopher Leclair heading out on his boat with his wife Saturday, and returning a few hours without her.  Then, he went out alone on the boat on Sunday, and a couple of hours later, finally reported her missing.

Christopher Leclair is now behind bars, charged with murder.  However, the search for Karen Leclair continues.
