Police say the body of a missing Oromocto First Nation man was found Sunday afternoon in the St. John River.
Peter Floyd Sabattis, 59, was found by a local resident around 5 p.m. said Cpl. Ryan Lewis of the Oromocto RCMP.
“There’s an autopsy ordered at a later date and the investigation is ongoing but there’s no suspicion of foul play.”
Sabattis was reported missing on May 17 and had been last seen May 16 near the St. John River.
Ground search and rescue crews had searched for Sabattis for two days before calling off the search.
Lewis said the RCMP wants to thank the members of the Oromocto First Nation for their endless support and dedication to find Sabattis.
