The body of the missing Cow Head man was found this morning.

The adult male is believed to have entered the water from the community wharf while riding an all-terrain vehicle Tuesday. A dive team had been in the area, but were unsuccessful in locating the suspected drowning victim. The dive operation had been suspended.

The RCMP reported the body was recovered just north of Shallow Bay near Lower Head. Police had the assistance of the Bonne Bay Ground Search and Rescue Team and a helicopter with Fire and Emergency Services.

An autopsy is expected to be performed today, according to police.
