The body of 36-year-old Tricia Boisvert has been found in western Quebec seven days after she disappeared from her Montreal home, sources say.
Sources told CBC News a Pontiac, Que., woman led police to the body off Proven Road, near Fifth Concession Road, just northeast of the village of Quyon, Que., on Thursday.
Major crime investigators and Montreal police forensic identification technicians have been sent to the scene.
Boisvert disappeared from her home on Notre-Dame Street West in Montreal's Southwest borough on Friday night, police said.
Her car, a black 2008 Pontiac G6 with the Quebec licence plate 156-XQG, was spotted in Ottawa on Tuesday, according to an Ottawa police source.
It has since been found in Ottawa.
Suspect still at large, police say
The suspect in the case, 30-year-old Philippe Steele Morin of Gatineau, is still being sought by Montreal police, who are leading the investigation.
Police have said they believe Morin was the last person to see Boisvert.
Gatineau police say Morin has been wanted since July 16 on charges related to an alleged domestic assault, as well as vehicle theft, mischief and breach of probation.
In Ottawa, Morin has been wanted since September for failing to appear in court on charges including possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime and breach of probation.
Ottawa police say they've had dealings with Morin for more than 10 years, and that the most recent matters are domestic in nature. Police would not provide further details.
