The body of a man who went missing last month during a canoe run on the Scoudouc River in southeastern New Brunswick has been recovered, say RCMP.

Ronald Savoie, 38, was canoeing with another man as part of the Scoudouc River Run when the canoe hit a tree and flipped. Savoie fell in and was swept away with the current. The other man made it to shore.

Savoie wasn't wearing a life-jacket.

RCMP confirm Savoie's remains were recovered from the river Tuesday afternoon.

Police have concluded his death was accidental, but the coroner has still ordered an autopsy, says Cpl. Alain Leblanc.
