Missing Man Found Dead Last Night

A man who had been missing for several hours last night was found dead in a culvert last night.

James Edward McGowan, of Holiday Village, had been missing for about an hour and a half last night when his wife became worried. McGowan was on heart medication and this was a cause of concern for his wife. McGowan had been on his property working on a dirt bike earlier in the afternoon when his wife came to find him. When she found he was not on the property, she called police.

After searching, a volunteer firefighter found McGowan lying in the culvert completely submerged in water. McGowan was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy will be carried out to find out the exact cause of death.
