Heartbreaking end to search for missing man
The search for an Ottawa man who was last seen at Montreal's Osheaga music festival over the weekend has ended tragically.
A body was found in the St. Lawrence River Monday afternoon.
Police have identified the body as 18 year old Collins Obiagboso.
Friends tell CTV Montreal they got separated in the crowd from Obiagboso, adding he wasn't carrying a wallet or cellphone because they were concerned about pickpockets.
His mom spoke with CTV before the heartbreaking discovery was made and described the ordeal of waiting to hear from her son.
“I’m feeling overwhelmed, scared, angry at him,” said Obiagboso's mother. “He should have known better. Even if he’s just with a friend, he could borrow a phone, call us or text on social media. He should have been able to do that, but I don’t know where to look for him right now.”
Police say there were no signs of violence on the body.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
