A Nanaimo man who drowned Wednesday near the Colliery Dam has been identified as 61-year-old David Richard Morgan.
Morgan was fishing with a group along the creek when he left to take photographs about 8: 30 p.m. Wednesday evening.
When he hadn't returned two hours later, his family contacted Nanaimo RCMP. A search began about 11: 40 p.m.
Morgan's body was found Thursday morning under a log in a creek.
It was the third drowning reported this week on the Island, and the fifth since July 6.
