Body of missing teen girl found in Quebec river two weeks after disappearance
Quebec provincial police have recovered the body of a teen who went missing nearly two weeks ago from the Rivière du Nord in Piedmont, Que. in the Laurentians.
A citizen reported to police that they had seen the body in the river shortly after 9 a.m.
Search teams first scoured the river looking for the young girl on May 12.
She was one of four people standing on a rocky surface near a bridge in Saint-Adele, the neighbouring municipality. She is said to have fallen in at around 12:30 p.m. that day.
In the days that followed, police officers and firefighters participated in the search for the teenager. The Surete du Quebec deployed personnel on watercraft, divers, its helicopter and a drone to patrol the area.
An investigation is ongoing to determine how she fell into the water.
The girl's identity is not being released by police because she is a minor.
