There has been a tragic turn of events in the search for a missing hunter in a densely wooded area near the community of Terra Nova.

An aerial search Monday afternoon located and helped recover the man’s body. Police say they received the call at around 4 a.m. Sunday that a vehicle had left a roadway and was submerged in a body of water.

The vehicle was carrying four people; three were able to make it to shore. The fourth man’s body was recovered Monday. The RCMP say he was located more than a kilometre down the river from the vehicle. Police say he was 37 years old and from St. John’s.
