A missing 15-year-old boy from St. Andre was found dead early Sunday morning.
St. Leonard RCMP Const. Cathy Doucet says officers responded to a report of a missing teen shortly before 10 p.m. on Saturday night.
Several emergency crews responded to the call to assist police in the search, including a ground search and rescue team.
“The boy was later found deceased, at 2:15 a.m., near the property,” said Doucet.
“At this time, we don’t believe criminality to be a factor in the boy’s death. An autopsy is to be scheduled to determine the exact cause of death, but we don’t have a date or time yet.”
An investigation into the boy’s death is ongoing.
