In an update, Sgt. Deb Hagarty with the Kawartha Lakes Police Service says members of the Ontario Provincial Police’s underwater search and recovery team located Draven Graham in the Scugog River around 3:30 p.m. on Monday.

Police say no foul play is suspected, but that their investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Draven was reported missing by his father around 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Officers from several jurisdictions and volunteer rescue crews searched for Draven on Sunday and Monday, with the help of police dogs, boats, a drone and a helicopter.

Hagarty says everyone involved “has a heavy heart” at this time and encouraged people to continue to support the family, while allowing them to grieve.
