Chase Martens, the two year old boy from Austin, Manitoba that went missing earlier this week has been found dead.

RCMP say that at around 2:45pm today, Marten's body was discovered at the bottom of a creek about half a kilometer south of his home.

RCMP Sergeant Bert Paquet says the boy's body will be sent for an autopsy, but there does not appear to be any obvious signs of foul play.

The search for Martens, who went missing Tuesday evening, included more than 500 volunteers, RCMP officers, Winnipeg Police Service search dogs, drones, and underwater search teams.
