CORNWALL – A body has been found in the St. Lawrence River near the RCAFA boat launch.

Cornwall Police Service spokesman Stephanie MacRae says they received reports about the body around 9 a.m. (Saturday) in the river behind the RCAFA Wing 424 building on Water Street.

“The CPS is working in partnership with the Regional Coroner’s Office and have no further details to release at this time,” she said.

Police have not said whether it’s a scuba diver, who went missing in Tuesday, June 11 near Lock 21 on Macdonell Island – almost 13 kilometers upstream.
