A 37-year-old Canadian man missing since early October has been found dead in Montana.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office says the body of Cameron Collin was found about 9:30 a.m. Saturday in a creek south of Billings.

Global News reached Cameron’s sister Julia Collin in Airdrie who said the family is “extremely heartbroken.”

Julia said she received a call from the sheriff’s office Saturday with the news that they recovered his body in the creek — the same creek where officials were focusing their efforts.

Collin had been in Montana for a wedding when he disappeared sometime on the night of Oct. 4.

A Sheriff’s Office press release on Saturday said there has been no indication of foul play during its ongoing investigation.

An autopsy was conducted on Monday morning, according to the Sheriff’s Office in Yellowstone County. It determined there were “no obvious signs of foul play” and indicates Collin likely died as a result of drowning.

“However, the medical examiner’s office will not make the final determination on the cause of death until they receive toxicology reports back from the laboratory,” Sheriff Mike Linder said in a news release. “It will likely be several weeks before the lab results come back.”
