Search ends for boy swept into Grand River

ORANGEVILLE, Ont. — The mother of a three-year-old boy who was swept into a swollen river in southern Ontario two months ago says the search for her son has ended after a child’s body was found nearby.

Provincial police say a fisherman found the body on Saturday afternoon near Orangeville, Ont., 13 kilometres downstream from where Kaden Young was torn from his mother’s arms as the family van entered the Grand River.

Investigators say they’re awaiting confirmation from the coroner to identify the remains.

But in a Facebook post Sunday morning, Kaden’s mother Michelle Hanson writes that two months of searching for her son “has finally come to an end.”
