Nearly two weeks after he went missing, the remains of Brandon resident Jordan Ross were found by the Manitoba RCMP on Thursday, according to his brother, Jeff Ross.
In a statement, Jeff Ross wrote that his brother’s body was found in the Assiniboine River. Although official confirmation has not yet taken place, a phone found on the body belonged to Jordan Ross.
“The search for Jordan is over,” Jeff Ross wrote. “He is home. Not how we want, but we can find peace in knowing he’s no longer lost out there and the healing process can begin. Thank you for your love and support through this very difficult time.”
Jordan Ross, who owned the Grand Valley Campground, had last been seen on the morning of June 17. More than 100 volunteers and police officers searched for him since his disappearance, using drones and river scanners in the attempt to locate him.
In an email to the Sun, Manitoba RCMP media relations officer Cpl. Julie Courchaine wrote that at 1 p.m. on Thursday, both the Brandon Police Service and Brandon RCMP responded to reports of a body seen in the Assiniboine River near Dinsdale Park.
However, Courchaine stated that the identity is unknown and an autopsy will be conducted. More information will be shared by RCMP later on.
