The body Rocky Mountain House RCMP found 30 km northeast of Rocky has been identified as that of a teenager reported missing from Eckville earlier this week.

With the assistance of the Calgary Medical Examiner, the body that was discovered has been identified as the 16-year-old male who was reported missing on Sunday.
