    Parks Canada said the bodies of two Boston snowshoers reported missing earlier this week have been recovered near Lake Louise, Alberta. 

    The two snowshoers, who were internal medicine residents, according to sources, had gone missing in the area of Banff National Park in Alberta and are believed to have been killed in an avalanche.

    The mounted police said they were notified by staff of a hotel on Tuesday that two registered guests from Boston had not checked out of their accommodations in Field, British Columbia. 

    Police later located a vehicle that the two people had rented at a trail head north of Lake Louise on Highway 93, near an area that had recently experienced an avalanche.
