Waterloo Regional Police Service officers were also on the scene, searching the grounds for evidence.

Insp. Kevin Thaler said he could not comment on whether any evidence was recovered in the search, as the investigation is ongoing.

Thaler said officers were acting on information given to them by a member of the public.

Huron Natural Area is located at the south end of Kitchener. Howlett’s body was found in the Grand River off Walter Bean Trail in July.
