A heavy police presence could be seen in the area of Simpson Avenue and Baseline Road in Bowmanville, Ont., on Tuesday Nov. 28 for most of the day, after investigators discovered human remains earlier that morning.

According to Const. Nicholas Gluckstein with Durham Regional Police, the body was discovered while police were out searching for another missing person. The area, located in the area of Soper Creek Park, was blocked off.

“What I can tell you is that they were found in a remote area,” said Const. Nicholas Gluckstein. “I don’t know if there were any signs of foul play because the investigation is so early,” he told Global News.
