The body of a nine-year-old boy who went missing after going into Winnipeg’s Red River on Friday afternoon has been found in the water, police said on Sunday afternoon.

Darius Bezecki was biking with two brothers and a friend near his home when all four ended up in the river, Const. Jay Murray told a news conference Saturday morning. Three of the boys were able to get out, but Darius didn’t make it out of the water, the officer said.

“It is incredibly sad and the outcome no one was looking for. Our thoughts are with his family,” Murray said in an emailed statement sent to media on Sunday.

Police have notified next of kin, he said.
