A body has been recovered from the Yukon River near Eagle, Alaska, State Troopers told the Dawson City RCMP Thursday afternoon.
Canadian police suspect that it may be the body of Tyson Foxcroft, a canoeist who went missing in mid-May.
Clothing descriptions matched those of the missing Foxcroft, reported the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.
A few days after his disappearance, police recovered the man’s canoe, lifejacket and two of his dogs, reported the CBC on May 27.
The search effort was called off in late May.
The Yukon coroner’s office and the Dawson City RCMP are working in partnership with the Alaska State Troopers and the Alaska medical examiner’s office to determine whether there is any connection between the recovered body and that of the missing canoeist.
The body was originally discovered on June 30 by two Germans on a canoe trip, wrote the Daily News-Miner. (Tristin Hopper)

RCMP mountain-bike patrols were in full force around the Canada Day weekend, conducting 10 alcohol and drug related arrests between last Saturday and Canada Day.
The patrols also nabbed a person on 10 outstanding warrants.
The arrests were all part of a continuing RCMP effort aimed at “crime hot spots,” which focus on the downtown area, including Shipyards Park, Rotary Park, and along the Yukon River bank area.
“The RCMP would like to remind the public that it is an offence to be intoxicated in a public place and it is also an offence to consume alcohol in public areas, such as parks, river banks and alleyways,” said an official release. (Tristin Hopper)
