A search for a missing Alfred-Plantagenet man ended at 4 p.m. Tuesday, August 29, when the body of Gary Foster, 78, was found by an Ontario Provincial Police canine unit in a densely wooded area near Curran.
He had been reported missing August 15.
The Office of the Chief Coroner attended the scene and a post mortem will be scheduled to determine the cause of death.
The OPP would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance in this matter.
August 1, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) launched a successful social media campaign in an effort to re-invigorate a homicide investigation that has been ongoing since 1975.
The remains of a female, which came to be known as Nation River Lady, were discovered in the Nation River by a local farmer, south of the Town of Casselman on May 3, 1975. OPP investigators wanted to re-introduce this case to the public in an effort to identify her and identify the person(s) responsible for her death.
Since the media launch, the OPP has received and is following up on over 18 tips so far from the public.
Under the direction of Case Manager, Detective Inspector Dan Nadeau of the Criminal Investigation Branch and Missing Persons and Unidentified Bodies Unit (MPUB), members continue to follow-up on all information provided and thank everyone who has called or provided information via e-mail.
