Body Found in Happy Valley Goose Bay

One of the bodies in the Muskrat Falls drowning tragedy has been found.

Sgt. Boyd Merrill is the RCMP Media Relations Officer in St. John’s.

He says on Friday, June 26th the body of Randy Scott Rose was found on the Goose River.

Merrill says Rose was found by his father.

He has been looking for his son every day since the tragedy occurred.

The body was then transported to the Happy Valley-Goose Bay hospital to be examined by the medical examiner.

Merrill says the reduced current and water levels will hopefully make it easier and safer for the volunteer search teams.

Two boats from the Ground Search and Rescue Team are continuing to search the area for the remaining two bodies.

Merrill adds on behalf of the RCMP, thoughts are with all those who lost loved ones.

Further information will be released when appropriate.
