Police treat death as homicide
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
Human remains found near Exeter this week are those of a 42-year-old London man reported missing last October.
Huron Ontario Provincial Police said last night detectives are investigating the death of Ronald SULLIVAN as a homicide.
"The autopsy found injuries that are suspicious, that led (police) to a homicide investigation," Huron Ontario Provincial Police Const. Don SHROPSHALL said last night.
Those who knew SULLIVAN had long suspected he was dead after hearing "lots of stories," about his disappearance, said a longtime friend
"I'm very sorry to hear about (the death), but I kind of figured that," said Gary BRADLEY, who had been Friends with SULLIVAN for 30 years.
"I heard he owed somebody about $1,500," he said, declining to go into detail.
Reached late last night, BRADLEY said he would like to talk more about his friend, but "just can't" at that time.
He had just undergone four hours of questioning by police because of his connection with SULLIVAN, he said.
BRADLEY was only one of many people police intend to interview, SHROPSHALL said.
"We are interested in speaking to anybody who had contact with him the day he went missing or even in the days before he went missing."
London police had been searching for SULLIVAN since he went missing last year. He was last seen October 14 at his home at 764 Curry St.
Since that day, BRADLEY said he has suspected foul play in SULLIVAN's disappearance.
Any hopes he had that his friend would be found alive faded this week when he learned Huron Ontario Provincial Police had received a tip that led them to human remains.
The remains were found Tuesday in a bush lot in a low-lying area off Park Road between Elimville Line and McTaggart Line -- a rural road closed during the winter because it's not maintained.
The remains had been there for months, SHROPSHALL said, possibly since October.
He would not elaborate on the nature of the injuries or cause of death.
Provincial police have spent days searching the area around SULLIVAN's remains. SHROPSHALL said they will continue, in hopes of finding "anything at all," linked to the crime.
London police also are involved with the probe, he said.
Anyone with any information about the case should call Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-8477), Huron Ontario Provincial Police (1-888-310-1122) or London police (661-5670).

Crisis nurse slain by half-brother
Family and Friends of Lorraine and Paul EGAN are stunned by the Sarnia murder-suicide.
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
A London native slain by her suicidal half-brother was a dedicated nurse who cared for Sarnia's mentally ill, loved ones recalled yesterday.
Colleagues were stunned -- and family members devastated -- by the killing last Thursday of 29-year-old Lorraine EGAN, a veteran nurse with Bluewater hospital's mental-health unit.
She was shot inside her upscale Sarnia apartment complex by sibling Paul EGAN.
The 44-year-old father of six then shot himself, police said.
"I don't know what happened," Audrey HATCHARD, Lorraine EGAN's maternal grandmother, said in a brief telephone interview yesterday. "I just know it's a tragedy."
To HATCHARD, the details leading to Thursday's shooting at 1285 Sandy Lane -- the posh lakeside highrise Lorraine had called home since February -- were still unclear. The brutal slaying was made all the more painful because of Paul EGAN's involvement.
"It's a terrible thing and none of us expected it," HATCHARD said.
Lorraine and Paul EGAN share the same father, Maurice, who died about five years ago.
Ellen EGAN, Lorraine's grieving mother, declined comment.
Sarnia police were also tight-lipped for similar reasons yesterday. Because they often bring the mentally ill to the emergency ward, many officers knew Lorraine EGAN and worked with her regularly, Const. Bill BAINES said.
So-called crisis intervention nurses also deal with victims of sexual assault and other traumatic incidents. Lorraine EGAN's dedication to the job was praised by BAINES and other colleagues.
"Lorraine was known for bringing fun to the unit," said Donna MORREAU, who worked with her for seven years. "She was very vibrant (and) energetic.
"There's still quite a sense of loss at the unit. Her loss is extremely difficult."
Lorraine EGAN grew up in London and fell in love with Sarnia while studying nursing at Lambton College. She had worked at Bluewater hospital for seven years.
Sarnia police, called to Sandy Lane about 6: 30 p.m. Thursday, found two bodies in a main-floor common area of the 12-storey complex. Investigators focused on a short hallway leading to a rear exit.
A tenant living above the hallway said he heard two shots, a woman's screams, then two more shots.
Though police immediately deemed the incident a murder-suicide, the victims weren't identified until yesterday.
The building has security cameras, but details of any images captured haven't been released.
Little is known about Paul EGAN, who lived in Forest. Contrary to one widespread rumour, he is not a former Sarnia police officer, Mayor Mike BRADLEY said.
He was, however, an active member of his family, said HATCHARD, included in all holiday gatherings.
The loss of Lorraine EGAN has stunned the clan, she added.
"She was the most beautiful girl to look at," HATCHARD said, noting her lone granddaughter was a perennial honours student.
"They (Lorraine and her mother) were very close. They contacted each other two and three times a day."

CULLEN helped put Sarnia on map
The former Sarnia-Lambton member of Parliament and federal judge died Tuesday at 78.
By Megan O'TOOLE, Free Press Reporter
Bud CULLEN, the man who introduced the Unemployment Insurance Act and helped establish Sarnia as a worldwide petrochemical centre, died Tuesday 78.
Yesterday, those who knew CULLEN remembered the integrity of the former Sarnia-Lambton member of Parliament and his life of public service.
CULLEN was accessible, laid-back, warm and friendly. He was a "people person" who genuinely cared about creating a more fair society, said Sarnia Mayor Mike BRADLEY, who served as CULLEN's campaign manager and executive assistant in the early 1980s.
"It was not his style to personalize politics," BRADLEY said yesterday.
CULLEN had been ill for some time.
He was first elected to Parliament in 1968, the year Pierre Trudeau became prime minister.
Ray CURRAN was vice-president of the Sarnia Liberal association at the time, and chaired the meeting at which CULLEN won his nomination.
"He was always one of the folks," CURRAN recalled. "He was very responsive to the needs of the community."
Trudeau named CULLEN to cabinet in 1974 as revenue minister. A year later, CULLEN was moved to Immigration, where he remained for four years.
His Liberal comrades and supporters recall a number of causes CULLEN pushed for that have had lasting impacts.
The Cullen-Couture Immigration Agreement, an initiative CULLEN spearheaded, gave Quebec the ability to select its own immigrants and became "a model for the federal government," BRADLEY said.
CULLEN was also instrumental in pushing for changes to the Immigration Act that allowed Vietnamese war refugees to more easily seek shelter in Canada.
"The changes he made... created an avenue for more good people to come to Canada and build it into the great nation it is today," said Jack FULLERTON, one of the founders of the weekly Sarnia Gazette.
During his tenure at the Gazette, FULLERTON, a longtime Liberal, endorsed CULLEN through his columns.
"He served his riding well," FULLERTON said.
CULLEN retired from Parliament in June 1984 and was named a judge to the Federal Court of Canada two months later.
"He made a number of landmark decisions, standing up for human rights and protecting Canadians through the Charter," BRADLEY said.
He pointed specifically to a controversial decision CULLEN made in 1999, quashing a certificate that allowed a man to be detained without explanation for "security reasons."
Most of all, though, BRADLEY recalls CULLEN as a kind and generous friend. "He was like a second father to me."
CULLEN's funeral is 11 a.m. Saturday in Ottawa.

BRADLEY, Dr. Leonard Orville (1914-2005)
On Friday, March 4th, Dr. Leonard Orville BRADLEY (Brad) passed away at the age of 90. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 63 years Mona, his four children, Leslie, Bill, Heather and Tom and their families, his two sisters, Dorethy and Helen, and his many Friends and family from across Canada.
Brad was always proud of his prairie roots and had fond memories of growing up in Neudorf, Saskatchewan.
He accomplished much in his 90 years, but his best decision was pursuing Mona BOUNDS, his companion through life and its many adventures, challenges and travels.
Brad was passionate and committed to the healthcare field. He was a pioneer in post-war hospital administration, having studied at the University of Chicago and helped develop and teach courses at University of Toronto. His career included many senior positions including Administrator of the Calgary General Hospital (1952-56), Executive Director of the Winnipeg General Hospital (1956-67), President of the Minneapolis Medical Center (1967-69), Executive Director of the Canadian Council on Hospital Accreditation (1969-1974), and Medical Director of the Vancouver General Hospital (1975-78). He received a number of honours for his work including the George Findlay Stephens Memorial Award (1980), the Outstanding Achievement Award for 1984 from the Medical Alumni Assoc. of the University of Alberta, and the Extendicare Award from the Canadian College of Health Service Executives (1988).
Brad also gave much time to the community over the years through his involvement in Rotary and Probus, serving as President of both organizations. Brad also enjoyed his involvement with the United Church.
Brad strongly believed in life-long learning. He received his M.D. in 1938. He achieved a number of other public administration designations and notably, received his final University Degree, a Bachelor of Arts from Athabasca University at the age of 86.
Brad always had a special place in his heart for the family cottage on Betula Lake in the Whiteshell Provincial Park, Manitoba. Mona and Brad never missed a summer for 46 years and it was there that Brad was able to pursue many of his passions: playing cards (including cribbage and bridge), kibitzing with the kids and calling them George and Mary Jane, taking on construction projects with son Bill, and swimming.
Brad passed peacefully, shortly after winning his final game of cribbage.
There will be a funeral service held at Scarboro United Church (134 Scarboro Avenue, S.W., Calgary) on Wednesday, March 9th at 3: 00 p.m. The family thanks Darlene and the other wonderful staff at Rockyview Hospital for their professional and compassionate care of Brad.

Susan GOLDBERG, Professor And Researcher: 1938-2005
Psychologist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children wrote the book on parent-child attachment
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, July 4, 2005, Page S6
As a research psychologist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, her work on attachment in children was internationally recognized. As a social activist involved in the peace movement, she guided parents on how to talk to their children about nuclear war. And as a folk musician, she formed choirs and song circles as part of her deep belief that building community could be done through music.
During her career, Susan GOLDBERG, who has died in Toronto at the age of 67, made significant contributions on the psychosocial implications of early medical problems, such as prematurity, developmental delay, cystic fibrosis and congenital heart disease, how they impact on parent-infant relationships and their consequences for a child's future emotional and social development.
Her book, Attachment and Development, was considered one of the best books on the subject, says Dr. Jean WITTENBERG, head of the infant psychiatry program at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. "She was able to put the theories into language that people understood," he said.
In the last months of her life, Dr. GOLDBERG's study of parent-child attachment was recognized and honoured when she received the Bowlby-Ainsworth Award from the Centre for Mental Health Promotion and the New York Attachment Consortium.
Susan WEISSMAN was a native of New York. Growing up in the Bronx, her parents Frank and Anne WEISSMAN were members of the Communist party and active in the labour movement. Childhood was filled with music, summer camps with the children of fellow Communists and lots of discussion about the rights of workers. She breezed through school; she was 16 when she went off to Antioch University in Yellow Springs, Ohio -- then a hotbed for social activism. It was there that she met her future husband Stanley GOLDBERG. They married and moved to Boston where he did graduate work in the history of science.
In the late 1960s, they moved to Zambia where Mr. GOLDBERG got a teaching job. They stayed in Africa for a couple of years before returning to the United States. Dr. GOLDBERG completed her PhD in child-developmental psychology and in 1974, the couple separated. With three young children, she moved to the Boston area where she got a job at Brandeis University. She taught there for the next seven years.
In 1981, Dr. GOLDBERG moved her family to Toronto and joined the psychiatry research unit at Sick Kids. Six years later, she was appointed professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Toronto.
"She was a very kindly mentor," said her former colleague Dr. Susan BRADLEY. " She was extremely valued and sought out by students. She mentored more PhD students than anyone else in our department."
During her career, she was also a member of the editorial boards of the Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development and Infant Behaviour and Development and played a leadership role among Canadian attachment researchers.
Active in the peace movement and having studied the effects of war on children, she wrote a guide called Facing the Nuclear Age: Parents and Children Together and spent time with parents groups to help them understand how to best talk to their children about nuclear war.
During the Gulf War of 1990, she put together a booklet that was distributed to Toronto school teachers to guide them in their discussions about global conflict in the classroom. In the guidelines, she recommends: "It is important that youngsters have an opportunity to express their concerns and to feel adults are taking those concerns seriously. Acknowledge that it is difficult to concentrate on other things in the wake of these events. You may, after some initial discussion, be able to set aside some time each day for this issue."
In the mid-1990s, Dr. GOLDBERG came up with a finding, which at the time she said could alter theories about parent-child attachment.
In experiments involving Romanian-born and Canadian-born four-year-olds, she found a tenfold difference in the tendency of Romanian-born orphaned children to be indiscriminately friendly.
"They would walk up to a stranger and behave affectionately with no hesitation and without checking with their mother," she told The Globe and Mail. This kind of unguarded behaviour normally is thought to result from the lack of a secure bond with a parent, she said at the time, but the Romanian children observed did have good bonds with their adoptive parents.
"Preschoolers who go up to strangers and behave affectionately cannot be said to be well protected," she said. "We have to clue-in parents that being sociable and friendly isn't always a positive thing." Indiscriminate affection is a good survival skill in an orphanage -- since it can win a child attention from busy staff -- but even children who have been in an adoptive family for several years continue to show this behaviour, Dr. GOLDBERG's research found.
Outside her research, Dr. GOLDBERG's other passion was music. "She had a life-long love of folk music," said her daughter Eve GOLDBERG, who is herself a professional musician. "She was always singing. We always had music in the house."
An organizer of the Woods Music and Dance Camp for adults in the Muskoka area of Ontario, she also started a Toronto community choir with her daughter Eve about six years ago. Created with the aim of singing folk music from around the world, the Common Thread Community Choir now has about 70 singers. "She was the heart and soul of the choir," said Eve.
Considered unpretentious by her colleagues, Dr. GOLDBERG was also extremely private. "She never talked about her feelings," Dr. WITTENBERG said. However, she could be outspoken if she felt an injustice had been committed. He recalls a particular child-development conference in Boston in which Dr. GOLDBERG stood up and challenged a top international researcher when he made what she felt was a misogynistic comment. "It was talked about for a long time."
Dr. GOLDBERG had been fighting cancer for several years. About 15 years ago she endured two lumpectomies and later a mastectomy. Last summer, doctors told her that the cancer had spread to her lung. Several months later, it spread to her brain. While she had retired in the early 2000s, she maintained an office and continued her research for as long as she could.
In her honour, the Susan Goldberg Colloquium on attachment, development and child psychotherapies has been established. It will be held every year at Sick Kids. When she heard the news, she told a colleague that she wished she could be there -- at least for the first one.
Susan GOLDBERG was born on March 25, 1938 in New York. She died at home in Toronto on June 14, 2005, surrounded by Friends and family. She leaves her children Ruth, David and Eve; sister Terry and brother Peter.

Bud CULLEN, Politician And Judge: 1927-2005
Liberal loyalist served in Pierre Trudeau's first cabinet only to be dumped when the party returned to power in 1980. A self-described 'front-bench backbencher,' he was later named to the Federal Court
Canadian Press; Globe and Mail archives; staff, Thursday, July 7, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Affable, likeable and reliable, he was a Trudeau man to the last. Even when dumped from cabinet, former immigration minister Bud CULLEN, was a loyalist.
"Bud was a good and decent man who always fought the good fight with decency and civility," his friend Mike BRADLEY and former campaign manager said Tuesday. Now the mayor of Sarnia, Ontario, Mr. BRADLEY once served as executive assistant to Mr. CULLEN, who represented the Sarnia-Lambton riding in southwestern Ontario from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984.
Mr. CULLEN was first appointed to the Trudeau cabinet in 1974 initially, as Minister of National Revenue and, then, as Minister of Employment and Immigration from 1976 to 1979.
As minister, he helped introduce the Immigration Act of 1976 which, for the first time, included a provision for private sponsorship of refugees. He also presided over amendments to the Unemployment Insurance Act in 1977 to increase work incentives and fairness among different economic regions.
Then disaster struck both the Liberal Party in general and Mr. CULLEN personally. In the May, 1979 general election, he was among about 10 Liberal cabinet ministers from Southern Ontario to lose their seats to the Tories led by Joe CLARK. Mr. CULLEN's Sarnia riding was something of a bellwether. Earlier on election night, as results dribbled in, the defeat of Mr. CULLEN had been seen as an indicator that the Liberal's were in trouble. Until that time, Sarnia was a stronghold that had, for years, withstood Tory onslaughts.
In the postmortems that followed, it was evident that the defeat of Mr. CULLEN and his cabinet colleagues could only mean one thing: As a referendum on Trudeau's leadership, Ontario had voted a resounding No.
Bud CULLEN was born in a northern Ontario village where he went to elementary school. He attended high school in Sudbury, Ontario, and went from there to the University of Toronto and to Osgoode Hall Law School.
As a young lawyer, he set up practice in Sarnia, Ontario, where he also developed an active interest in politics. It was also where he retreated after his 1979 electoral defeat. He went back to his law practice and waited and watched. It was, after all, however, a minority government that had replaced the Liberals and only time would tell how long it would survive.
While he waited, Mr. CULLEN did a most curious thing for someone in the public eye: He changed his name. Familiar to Canadians as Bud, he applied under the Change of Name Act to have his name officially switched from Jack Sydney George to Bud, a nickname his mother had given him when he was a young boy. The change, he said, came about because of his renewed role as a lawyer.
"While I was in politics I had no trouble using the name Bud but now that I am back practising law the name Bud could not legally be used," he said in October of 1979. "I cleared the name change with my mother first."
For all that, he was not to be Bud CULLEN the lawyer for long. The Progressive Conservative government of Joe CLARK was soon defeated in the Commons and a new general election was called. In February of 1980, Mr. Trudeau became Prime Minister with a parliamentary majority that included Mr. CULLEN. That, however, was as close as Mr. CULLEN would get to the inner circles of power. The man who had once served as parliamentary secretary to John TURNER when he was finance minister under Lester PEARSON, Mr. CULLEN was not invited back into cabinet.
At 52, he was one of three former Trudeau ministers (the others were Judd Buchanan and Bryce Mackasey) who came back from personal defeat to gain seats in the 1980 election, and he could not, at the time, restrain his feelings. His first reaction at not being reappointed, he said, was of "disappointment that I didn't make [Cabinet] myself. Having been there once it would have been nice to get back."
The 24-hour period before the swearing-in of the new Cabinet, he explained, had been a particularly tense period. It was a time during which each time the telephone rang he wondered if it was the Prime Minister calling about a Cabinet posting. What made it worse was that many Friends from Ottawa had telephoned his Sarnia home to inquire.
All the same, Mr. CULLEN appeared not to feel shortchanged and bitter. "When you play in politics, you play by the rules of the game," he said with characteristic philosophy. "Sometimes you get squeezed by geography, and sometimes it's personality. If you can't accept it, you don't last very long."
As it turned out, neither he nor Mr. Trudeau had much time left in politics. By August of 1983, the Ottawa rumour mills signalled Mr. Trudeau would quit by Christmas.
A Canadian Press survey had quoted six Liberal members of Parliament as saying Mr. Trudeau should step down while others were less declarative. Ever the loyalist, Mr. CULLEN criticized his fellow caucus members and accused his colleagues of having "flapping tongues... That's not the way Liberals conduct their business."
In the end, the rumours turned out to be fairly accurate. Two months after the predicted date, Mr. Trudeau announced he would step down. Mr. TURNER took over the leadership of the Liberal Party and suddenly the country was in the grips of a summer election campaign. As far as Mr. CULLEN was concerned, however, the campaign could go on without him. In June of 1984, he announced he would not seek re-election. Recently remarried, he chose instead to spend more time with his wife Nicole and their young son.
And that was not all. He confided that he had contemplated resigning the previous year but was reluctant at a time of low Liberal support. Once again, he had felt bound by loyalty. As a former Cabinet minister and chairman of the Commons justice committee he had remained seated on the Liberals' front bench. "I was called a front-bench backbencher," he once joked.
Then the polls began to show a resurgence in party support and he knew the time was right. A Gallup poll in May of 1984 pegged Liberal popularity at 46 per cent, six percentage points above the Tories. It was to be his exit cue.
To the last, he never divulged why he was dropped from cabinet but did admit the fall had hurt. All the same, he stayed loyal to Mr. Trudeau since the demotion. "I have never had a bad thought about him in 16 years," he said in 1984.
A month later, his fidelity paid off. In July of 1984, newly minted prime minister John TURNER announced he had been forced by constitutional circumstances to agree to appointments for 17 retiring Liberal members of Parliament. Among them was Bud CULLEN, who was made a judge of Federal Court of Canada, trial division, at a salary of $89,100 plus $2,000 allowance for robes and wigs, not including a generous House of Commons pension.
His appointment, and those of his colleagues, caused bitter complaints of patronage -- including a roasting by the Canadian Bar Association that said it was too open to political considerations and did not guarantee that the best people would be named to the bench.
For all that, Mr. CULLEN took happily to his new role and survived criticism. From time to time, he continued to make headlines, the last occasion, in late 2001, just weeks after the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Although under pressure by lawyers from the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, Mr. Justice CULLEN kept his head and denied the agency's attempts to detain an Egyptian immigrant it suspected was involved in terrorism. He criticized Canadian Security and Intelligence Service interrogation techniques and said they were more suited to a police shakedown of potential criminal informants than an agency trying to extract information in a sensitive cross-cultural situation.
Judge CULLEN left the bench soon after and retired to Ottawa.
Prime Minister Paul MARTIN yesterday issued a press release that was, perhaps, a last reward for loyal service. Mr. MARTIN, who is also leader of the Liberal Party, paid tribute to Mr. CULLEN and extended to his family "our deepest condolences on his passing and our profound appreciation for what he gave to his country."
Bud CULLEN was born Jack Sydney George CULLEN on April 20, 1927 in Creighton Mine, near Sudbury, Ontario He died in Ottawa on July 5, 2006. He was 78. Cause of death was not disclosed. He is survived by his wife Nicole and by six children, three of whom are from an earlier marriage to Marion Ann Hawley.
MERRITT, William Hamilton, 1862 -- Died This Day
Thursday, July 7, 2005, Page S9
Businessman, politician and visionary born on July 3, 1793, at Bedford, N.Y.
The son of Loyalist settlers who found refuge at what later became St. Catharines, Ontario, he operated a number of mills on his property and first conceived of building a canal that would service them. The idea was seized on by others with the result that it developed into a ship canal that linked Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, thus solving the obstacle caused to navigation by the Niagara Falls. In 1824, he formed the Welland Canal Co. and five years later it opened for business. In 1832, he became a member of the Legislative Assembly and was chief commissioner of public works from 1850 to 1851. He campaigned for the St. Lawrence River to be altered and turned into a canal and argued the case for more railways. He died in Cornwall, Ontario, while a passenger on board a ship.

"We follow a pathway that has no end as we travel through life day by day, together with those who are dear to our hearts and are there by our side come what may, but sometimes a loved one must travel ahead for reasons that aren't always clear, and we're left behind to continue along missing one who is no longer here, and while it may seem that the pathway has stopped, it merely has rounded a bend and our loved one goes on to a much brighter place down the pathway that has no end." One day I will again be with you my love and we will travel the path together hand in hand forever. God will take care of us.

Missing boater found dead in Georgian Bay
Teen was wearing wetsuit, life vest
Search continues for two others
By Roberta AVERY, Special To The Star
Cabot head -- The body of one of three boaters missing since Friday evening was pulled from the waters of Georgian Bay late last evening.
The body identified as that of 15-year-old Adam MUSIALKAEWACZ of Hamilton was found about 9 kilometres northeast of Cape Croker, northeast of Wiarton on the Bruce Peninsula, and about 40 kilometres south of where they were last seen, said Ontario Provincial Police Constable Steve STARR.
"He was wearing a wetsuit and a life jacket when he was found," said STARR.
The discovery came after an extensive two-day air and water search by the Ontario Provincial Police, the Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Trenton, Parks Canada and private vessels that covered southern Georgian Bay as far south as Meaford. MUSIALKAEWACZ and his Friends Karol LASKOWSKI, 23, of Hamilton, and Rafal SIENKIEWICZ, 17, who is visiting from Poland, were last seen around 7 p.m. Friday just south of Cabot head in an open 15-foot sailboat. Some campers spotted the boat trying to head into the wind toward shore.
It's believed there was no VHF radio, cellphone or lights on board, said Maj. Gerry FAVRE of the rescue centre.
John TOZER, a sailor who lives in nearby Dyer's Bay, said there was quite "a blow" on Friday evening with winds from the north making conditions unsuitable for a small boat.
"There was no way they could have gone into that wind," said TOZER.
Environment Canada reports there was a small-craft wind warning on Georgian Bay Friday evening with winds gusting up to 50 km/h.
Kathleen BRADLEY and Guy LANGMAN, who are the lighthouse keepers at Cabot Head, were on the porch of their cottage adjacent to the lighthouse early Saturday morning when a distraught man arrived and asked if they had seen a sailboat.
"He was very upset," said BRADLEY.
The man, who identified himself as the father of one of the boaters, said he had discovered the car and trailer used to transport the boat on the beach about 2 kilometres from the lighthouse early that morning and had already searched the harbour at Lion's head
BRADLEY sent the man to search nearby Wingfield Basin where sailors often take shelter during rough weather. When there was no sign of the missing boat, LANGMAN suggested the man call the coast guard and gave him a phone and all the contact information.
The man called the coast guard and then explained he was staying at a remote cottage with no telephone so BRADLEY invited him to stay at the lighthouse and the man went to fetch his wife and their 5-year-old daughter
"They waited all day for news but there was none. It was upsetting to see them; we wished there was something we could do," said BRADLEY.
She invited them to return yesterday, but they didn't come back, she said.
There is no dock at Cabot head so the young boaters would have had to carry the boat over the stony beach to reach the water, said BRADLEY.
The Class 470 Spanish-made sailboat had flotation compartments and should be unsinkable unless the hull is damaged, said STARR.
Searchers had hoped that as all three were believed to be wearing wetsuits there was a chance they would have survived two nights in the 17°C water even if the boat had capsized, said STARR.
"As Adam was found wearing a wetsuit it doesn't bode well for the others. It's a very sad situation," said STARR.
The search for LASKOWSKI and SIENKIEWICZ is to resume this morning.

Bud CULLEN, 78: Former federal cabinet minister
Canadian Press
Sarnia, Ontario -- Bud CULLEN, a cabinet minister in Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government, has died. He was 78.
"It is with sadness that I learned of the passing of the Honourable Bud CULLEN," Prime Minister Paul MARTIN said in a statement yesterday. "CULLEN played an important role in defining the Canada of today."
Sarnia Mayor Mike BRADLEY issued a statement Tuesday night saying CULLEN had died that afternoon in Ottawa.
BRADLEY was campaign manager and executive assistant to CULLEN, who represented the Sarnia-Lambton riding from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984. He described his friend as a decent man who always fought the good fight with civility.
"I never once saw him angry or mad," he said yesterday. "He felt politics was a public service, and he often said to me if he hadn't entered politics he would have been a United Church minister."
Jack Sydney George (Bud) CULLEN was born in April, 1927, in Creighton Mine, Ontario, near Sudbury.
First elected to Parliament in 1968 and appointed to the Trudeau cabinet in 1974 as minister of national revenue, he was minister of employment and immigration from 1975 to 1979.
"He helped to usher in the Immigration Act of 1976, which for the first time included a provision for private sponsorship of refugees," MARTIN noted.
CULLEN also sponsored rules to protect Canadian publications threatened by U.S. competition and introduced the Unemployment Insurance Act.
In 1984, CULLEN was named a judge of the trial division of the Federal Court of Canada. He retired in September, 2000.
A cause of death was not given.
