Any word on whether body was woman or man? Age?

The location of the foot is 24 minutes, or 22 km, from the location of the body. Could this mean that it is two sets of remains?

Map showing the two locations:

By: Sudbury Northern Life Staff

Police believe they have located the body related to the human foot found in Mississagi Provincial Park, north of Elliot Lake, on July 16.

Yesterday, after receiving a report on the weekend that a human foot had been found in the park, the OPP Underwater Search and Recovery Unit located and recovered a body in Semiwite Lake at the Mississagi Provincial Park, 22 kilometres north of Elliot Lake.

The condition of the body indicates that it has been under water for a lengthy period of time, police report.

The investigation is continuing with the Coroners Office. Although police believe the foot found on the weekend goes with the body found yesterday, forensic identification of the found remains has not yet been completed.

Police continue their investigation in an effort of identifying the deceased.

Body recovered in provincial park 29
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 12:08:22 EDT PM

OPP in Elliot Lake have found a body in Semiwite Lake at the Mississagi Provincial Park.

The park is located about 22 km north of Elliot Lake.

OPP Const. Christine Ouimet said the condition of the body indicates that it has been under water for a lengthy period of time.

It's believed that the human foot found earlier this month at the park, is also part of the same victim.

Ouimet said the OPP Underwater Search and Recovery Unit are continuing to comb Semiwite Lake today for any other evidence and the lake remains off limits to visitors.

The coroner's office will continue its investigation to determine the identity of the victim and determine whether foul play was involved.

Ouimet could not say how long the coroner investigation will take.

to me that seems like a strange way of saying things "Identification was located"  to me that makes it sound like they found identification in the lake or beside the lake and think it may be this person.  What do the rest of you think of the wording of that???? or is it just me????

I took it to mean that identification may have been located on or within the person's clothing. That would mean that it could be a bit more firm that the missing person from decades ago, does in fact match the identification. Of course, and rightly so, the authorities have to have firm DNA confirmation to formerly announce. It would be devastating for a family that has gone through so much to be falsely told it is their loved one.

I searched the net today and found nothing about a follow from the point of awaiting DNA results. I contacted the local newspaper and ask them if they would follow up on this story. Fingers crossed  they come up with something.

I know it has been awhile since the last post, but did you ever hear back from the local newspaper? I just recently searched and found nothing either about the Unidentified remains north of Elliot Lake.
