On Saturday at around 9:45 p.m., RCMP received a report of a 63-year-old missing man who had last been seen leaving a home and leaving on a boat on the Jack River at 9 p.m. that night.
Officers began a search that included shoreline checks, a drone search, and boat patrols.
At around 7 a.m. on Sunday, the man’s remains were found in the river. Police say an autopsy will take place, but criminality is not suspected in the death.
