Two Hamilton men have been charged in relation to the death of a missing man. Daniel Baffoh, 26, has been missing since Jan. 31 and police now say he is believed to have been murdered.

Police have arrested Mark Langille, 43, and charged him with first degree murder. Damian Langille, 23, has been charged with accessory after the fact. Detective Sergeant Joe Stewart identified the pair as father and son.

Police say they believe Daniel was killed in Hamilton and think his body might have been disposed of in the Grand River. They have not yet recovered a body, but are asking residents along the Grand River to keep a look out for signs of Baffoh's body as the ice melts and to contact police immediately if they spot anything.

Around 11:30 p.m. Friday night, police arrived at Langille's house at 773 Upper Gage Avenue. They were on scene throughout the night and Saturday. Animal control was on the scene to remove several pit bull dogs from the residence and the forensic unit arrived to join the investigation around 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Daniel Baffoh's family reported him missing in February. He was last seen on Jan. 31. Police have not released any information on how the Langilles were associated with Baffoh or the cause of death.
