On August 19, at 11:25 p.m., Yarmouth Rural RCMP responded to a missing child report. The child, who was visiting the Canaan area with their family, had left a residence earlier in the evening for an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) ride and hadn’t returned.
At 1:30 a.m. on August 20, an RCMP officer located the ten-year-old child, who was from Coldbrook, deceased. The ATV the child was driving was found in a ditch along Plymouth Gentian Road in Gavelton.
The investigation is ongoing, assisted by the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service.
Our thoughts are with the child’s family at this difficult time.
