The body of a deceased male was discovered in Princeton Thursday morning, Oct. 13, according to RCMP.

Detachment commander Sgt. Rob Hughes said it will take several days before the remains can be identified.

For two weeks police have been looking for local resident Dave Horsfall, 61, missing since Sept. 28.

Hughes said there is no criminality suspected in this death, and stressed the male’s identity has not been confirmed.

The body was discovered on a trail leading from Sunset Avenue to The Hut, a local business on Highway 3. That is near Granite Street, where Horsfall was last seen.
