Nunavut RCMP say the body of missing hunter since Sunday has been located by search and rescuers from Pond Inlet.

The boy was one of two friends who went on an overnight seal hunting trip, one travelling by snowmobile, one by dog team. The missing hunter was travelling by dog team.

The two separated, and the missing hunter didn't turn up at an overnight camp area as expected.

RCMP say they will assist the Office of the Chief Coroner with its investigation into the death.

RCMP have not confirmed the hunter's age, but a local search and rescue captain said he was 13 years old.
