A man from Thompson, Man., reported missing earlier this month has been found dead.
Bradley Johnson, 40, was last seen on the morning of July 1 near a Best Western Hotel in the northern Manitoba community.
His abandoned vehicle was later found near the Miles Hart Bridge, which runs over the Burntwood River in Thompson. Johnson’s personal belongings were also found on the bridge.
Search teams didn’t have any luck finding Johnson in the area at the time.
On July 12, RCMP released a statement saying they believed Johnson could be in the Blumenort or Steinbach area in southern Manitoba.
On Friday evening, RCMP announced Johnson was found dead. Investigators don’t believe foul play was involved.
Thompson RCMP are seeking information about a 40-year-old man who was last seen July 1 after a vehicle and some of his belongings were found near the Miles Hart Bridge on the Burntwood River that day.
Police were notified of an abandoned vehicle around 11:30 a.m. on July 1 and found items belonging to Bradley Johnson, who had not been seen since around 4:30 a.m. that morning near the Best Western Hotel. A search using a police dog did not turn up any further evidence and RCMP are still uncertain of Johnson’s whereabouts after multiple searches in the area and interviews with many witnesses.
