Three people who were using a boat to search the Saint-Ignace River located the body around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday,  according to  Sgt. Patrick Tardif of the Richibucto RCMP.

The body was found a few metres off the bank of the river, Tardiff said.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.
