RCMP and search and rescue teams from the Labrador community of Makkovik have located the body of a young snowmobiler who has been missing since Sunday.
The 14-year-old's remains were found on ocean ice about seven kilometers from shore.
Searchers used a helicopter to follow a set of tracks leading away from the community to the deceased.
The identity of the boy is not being released at this time.
The RCMP has extended its thanks to everyone who helped in the search.
The search for the boy began after he was reported missing Sunday at 7:30 p.m., six hours after he left his parent’s home on a snowmobile.
Police say the boy left his parent’s house around 1:30 p.m. and made a short stop at his grandmother’s home before heading to an unknown destination.
