Today, the Nova Scotia RCMP, with assistance from our partners, recovered the body of a 52-year-old Windsor man. Human remains were also located and we are working with the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner’s Office to positively identify the remains.
The man, a youth and two children were reported missing on July 22 after the vehicles they were travelling in were caught in flood waters in separate incidents.
A multi-agency search is continuing for those who remain unaccounted for following the weekend’s weather event.
In an effort to lower the water level in the primary search area in Brooklyn, industrial and high-flow pumping equipment continues to be utilized, with assistance from civilian contractors and our partners. Search and rescue teams in West Hants, East Hants and Valley, along with the Department of Natural Resources and Renewables, are engaged.
RCMP resources include Police Dog Services, Air Services, and General Duty Policing.
The investigation is ongoing, with assistance from the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner’s Office.
Our thoughts remain with the affected families at this difficult time.
