After a search that lasted nearly a week, the body of 2-year-old Myles was recently found in the Peace River.


The body of 2-year-old Myles, who went missing last Friday near Wapiti River in Greenview, was found by the police over 130 miles away from the starting point of their search.

According to CBC, the search party recovered the body on July 12 from the Peace River. The RCMP of the area stated that Myles’ corpse was found in the river by the 94th Street in the Town of Peace River.

Peace River RCMP revealed that the body had been identified tentatively as that of Myles. According to the Grand Prairie RCMP, the boy was last seen by his parents when the family was near Canfor Bridge.

The efforts of the search teams to find Myles multiplied over the past weekend when they also engaged corresponding underwater rescue teams from Manitoba and Saskatchewan in the search.

CBC earlier reported that the search took place amid harsh weather and the authorities had made arrangements for the public to keep away from the area.

The case triggered a heartening response from a few residents of Grand Prairie, who offered the first responders hot coffee and food.


A woman named Arlene De Heus had also started a teddy bear campaign online, in which participants placed teddy bears outside their homes as a mark of support for the family.


Shortly after Myles’ body was found, the Town of Peace River published a brief note of condolence on their official website. The post, written on behalf od the town, read that they had sincerely hoped for Myles’ safe return to his family.

As a mark of condolence, the statement also mentioned that besides offering the family their thoughts and prayers, all the flags installed at official Town facilities would be lowered to half-mast until Monday morning.
