The RCMP is sharing more information on a missing Buffalo Narrows-area man, after his family confirmed early on Tuesday that his body had been found.

Ernest Sylvestre, 68, had last been seen at his Michel Village home on Dec. 14.

He was reported missing on Saturday.

A request for information from the public was later sent out by Dillon RCMP.

Now, the RCMP says a search party found Sylvestre deceased about a kilometre away from his truck, which was parked on a bush road just west of the village.

The sad discovery came Monday afternoon.

The RCMP says Sylvestre’s death doesn’t seem suspicious in nature, and the coroner is involved.
