A dive team from the Royal Canadian Mountain Police is currently at the lake and the agonising search is continuing to locate David.
David had recently moved to Canada with his girlfriend Ciara, and is a hugely popular figure within the Irish GAA community in Vancouver and within the GAA community at home with his club Breaffy and with his county Mayo.
David's family have now arrived from Ireland to Kinbasket Lake, and are now waiting in hope that the divers will be able to recover him.
In order to help David's family, girlfriend Ciara, her family, friends and teammates at this time, we've set up this page in order to raise as much funds as we can to support the search and associated expenses in locating David and getting him home.
Any support at this time, would be greatly appreciated and please keep sharing this fundraising page.
Thank you, from all at ISSC Vancouver.
A note from our friends at Breaffy GAA:
Breaffy GAA are heartbroken to report that our good friend David Gavin is reported missing in Canada following a swimming incident.
We stand with David's family, Girlfriend and his many worried friends and pray that David will be found soon and back in the arms of those who love him so much.
You are all welcome to join us for a special Mass of support at Breaffy GAA Clubhouse on Wednesday 5th of July at 9.30pm
Breaffy GAA would like to also thank Vancouver ISSC for their support of the family and assistance in Canada.
