On Saturday, July 9, 2022, at approximately 7:06 p.m., Carrot River RCMP received a report that 5-year-old Frank Young had been located deceased in the river on Red Earth Cree Nation, near the area he was originally reported missing from on April 19. Frank's family has been notified.
At this time, there is no indication of suspicious circumstances, but as he was just located, further investigative steps will be taken, including working in partnership with the Saskatchewan Coroner's Service and an autopsy will take place.
"This is not how anyone wanted the search for Frank to end. Our deepest condolences are with Frank's family, loved ones, and community who have been greatly impacted by this tragedy," said Sgt. Richard Tonge, Carrot River RCMP Detachment Commander. "We would like to thank everyone within the community and beyond, who assisted in the search for Frank."
