Missing senior's vehicle, human remains discovered

RCMP say they've located human remains a short distance from a vehicle registered to a missing 84-year-old man from Trout Brook.

Marcel Berthiaume has not been in contact with friends or family since May 20th, and police say an exhaustive search for him was unsuccessful.

A Jeep matching the description of his vehicle was found on Tuesday by two hunters in the woods near Sunny Corner.

Police confirmed the vehicle belonged to the missing man, and say the human remains were discovered a short distance away from the Jeep.

RCMP say further testing is required to confirm the remains are those of Berthiaume, and foul play is not suspected at this time.
