Body found in Rideau River

Ottawa Police have recovered a body in the Rideau River near the rapids at Hog's Back.

Because the water is fast-moving from heavy rainfall and snow melt, crews had difficulty bringing boats near enough to the body to retrieve it from the frigid waters.

Police are not able to confirm whether the body belongs to Ottawa photographer John Davies, the 66-year-old man missing since April 3.

They have been searching a nearby area for the past several days.

It could take hours or days to identify the body.
