Police say the body has yet to be identified, but it’s believed to be that of a 13-year-old girl from Grand Falls, New Brunswick who was swept away last Friday.
Shannon Bernard was swimming with friends in the Grand Falls area when she got caught up in the current.
Authorities say the swimmers were in a dangerous area near a popular tourist spot overlooking a gorge and falls.
The body was spotted Thursday morning floating in the river.
Grand Falls police chief says the missing girl’s parents have been notified.
