Two Calgary teenagers have been charged with murder after the body of a missing man was discovered. 

The 16-year-old boy and his girlfriend were arrested in Halifax and flown back to Calgary, according to CBC News sources.

Neither teen can be named due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

In August, Calgary police asked for the public's help locating Jason David Peter Greyeyes, 48, who was last seen around 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 11, 2018, in the city's southeast.

At the time, police said Greyeyes had limited mobility and often required a cane or walker.

According to police, Greyeyes' body was found in the 21,000 block of Sheriff King Street S.W. on Aug. 26.

The teens appeared before a justice of the peace in Calgary on Wednesday.
