Missing Yukon teen Tristan Chapman has been found dead.
The 17-year-old was reported missing May 25. At the time police said he was last seen three days earlier leaving Shipyards Park and walking towards Boston Pizza at 11 p.m.
On Wednesday morning Yukon RCMP located the Ross River teen’s body in the Yukon River near Whitehorse.
Chapman’s body will be sent Outside for an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Meanwhile, officers are trying to piece together his last days, said RCMP staff Sgt. Brad Kaeding.
They’re encouraging anyone who may have seen Chapman around the time of his disappearance to come forward. Right now police don’t know whether foul play was involved.
“That’s sort of the big question, the big focus of the investigation right now is getting the autopsy results for one, to try and determine the cause of death,” Kaeding said.
