Saskatoon police confirm they found blood along the icy edge of the river as they investigate the mysterious disappearance of a groom last seen at his own stag party.
Police have also released a more comprehensive picture of the events as they may have unfolded.
Twenty-eight-year-old Gregory “Myles” MacIntosh, who is from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, was reported missing to the Saskatoon Police Service on Sunday, Feb. 4 at 4:00 a.m. CST.
MacIntosh’s family and friends fear he may have walked into the river and drowned.
In a news release on Friday, police said they found blood on the ice at the river’s edge. Investigators are now waiting for DNA test results of that evidence.
MacIntosh was asked to leave Outlaws bar midnight CST on Feb. 2.
A few minutes later, police said they were called to a report of a fight between two men on a pub crawl bus. That bus had just left Outlaws and was on route to an east-side bar. When police arrived, one of the men involved in the fight had already left the area, and investigators could not find him.
Then, at approximately 12:30 a.m. CST police received a report that a man had been seen walking on the ice along the east side of the South Saskatchewan River. The witnesses said they saw what appeared to be a man fall into the water, and disappear.
Police believe these incidents may be connected. Still, police said their investigation continues as they await the results of DNA tests from evidence found at the river.
