The family of a 57-year-old man missing since last July have said police have told them it was his body found in the area of the regional hospital.
Michael Quirielle was last seen on July 8, 2017 in the area of the hospital. Last year police conducted extensive, but ultimately unsuccessful search operations, including an intense ground search of the forested and trail areas east of the hospital that involved a K9 unit and dredging a pond, as well as utilizing a helicopter for an air search.
The Thunder Bay Police Service on Tuesday reported that a member of the public discovered human remains on the property of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.
Police have not publicly released the identity of the remains or said whether the death is being considered suspicious.
