Thetis Lake is currently host to the West Shore RCMP, View Royal Fire Department and CRD Bylaw officers as emergency crews head out onto the water.
It is uncertain as to why the watercraft has been launched late Sunday afternoon and it is unknown at this time if anyone is in the water.
Witnesses say the incident looks to have occurred in the Upper Thetis Lake area but the emergency services watercraft was launched from the main beach at Thetis for easy access.
