Police find body during search for missing Cape Breton teen

Cape Breton Regional Police say they have recovered a body during a search for a missing person.

Police say dive team members were doing a shoreline search near Pitt Street in Sydney Mines on Sunday morning when they found a deceased male.

The victim's identity has not been released, but the province's Serious Incident Response Team says the body is that of a young male.

SiRT says the youth may have been one of several who fled a gathering at a Sydney Mines residence on Wednesday after police were called for an unrelated complaint.

The team says it has assumed jurisdiction for the investigation because the male may have fled as a result of police arrival.

At the time the body was found, police had been looking for 15-year-old Kobe Clarence Pink, who was last seen Wednesday evening.

Police say an autopsy will be conducted in Dartmouth on Monday.
