A human body found in the beach area near Upper Gullies this morning is that of missing man Wayne Peacock, according to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.
Peacock, 58, was last seen at his home in the Topsail area around 7 a.m. March 22. He was reported missing around 6 p.m. that day and his red Mazda pickup was later found in the Topsail Beach parking lot. He was known to exercise in the area.
Divers and the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary's fast rescue craft scoured the waters off Topsail Beach Tuesday. Earlier this week the RNC announced his footwear had been found in the Topsail Beach area.
