A missing 79-year-old man has been found dead two kilometres from his vehicle.
RCMP said hunters located the body of Carl Ellingson a short time ago. No foul play is suspected, police said.
RCMP issued a missing persons alert after Ellingson failed to arrive at his home in Benito on Thursday. He was last seen leaving Swan River on Thursday after 5 p.m.
Ellingson required medication, and police and family members searched the area for him and his vehicle.
RCMP are continuing to investigate, but said no further information will be released.
