The RCMP says the body of a Cow Head man who went missing last week was found in the water Monday morning.

Police said a helicopter located the man's remains at around 9 a.m. just north of Shallow Bay near Lower Head.

"Right now, it's still fairly early. We have to get the results of the autopsy to get more detailed information," said Cpl. Dean Hyde.

"It appears that the gentleman, from where he was found to where he was last seen — or reportedly last seen — that indications are he probably drowned."

The man was last seen with a group of people at a wharf in Cow Head on July 22. The RCMP recovered the ATV he was riding at the time he was spotted.

Police added they aren't releasing the man's identity at this time.
