Body of missing boy drowned near Rockport found
According to a Facebook post from a page called “Missing Boy Rockport Search,” the body of the 11-year-old Ottawa boy who drowned near Rockport, Ont., has been found.
Although it does not specify when the body was recovered, the post was published Friday around noon and says after “48 agonizing days” of searching, the boy’s body was found.
On Sept. 1, around 4 p.m. the 11-year-old boy and four adults were on a 26-foot speedboat on the St. Lawrence River near the Ed Huck Marine when the boat was capsized by a large wave.
The four adults survived, although two were taken to a hospital in Kingston with minor injuries.
The boat was recovered but the boy never surfaced.
