Strathmore RCMP and fire services have located the body of a 30-year-old Calgary man believed to have drowned in the Bow River near Highway 24 and Wydham Park in Carseland, Alta., on Sunday.
Family members on scene of the investigation confirmed to Global News on Monday the identity of the deceased to be Curtis McKinlay.
At around 9:25 p.m. on Aug. 9, Strathmore RCMP responded to a report of a man who went missing while swimming in the water.
Police said the man jumped in the river but never returned after swimming downstream.
On Sunday evening, officers alongside Strathmore and Wheatland fire services searched the area but were called off due to a lack of daylight, police said.
On Aug. 10, RCMP and a search and rescue team continued its search for the missing man, and on Monday afternoon officials confirmed the man’s body had been recovered from the river.
Carseland is about 67 kilomteres southeast of Calgary.
This marks the second drowning on the Bow River over the weekend. On Saturday, a 16-year-old boy drowned in the river near the Seebe Dam west of Calgary.
