NewsAlert:Missing journalist found dead
By The Canadian Press
BROCKVILLE, Ont. - Police have confirmed that a body found in a field in eastern Ontario is that of a journalist who went missing earlier this week.
Belleville police Detective Jeremy Ashley says the body of 39-year-old Steve Pettibone was discovered not far from his abandoned vehicle.
The car was found in a rural area outside Brockville, Ont., on Tuesday night, prompting an extensive search that led to the discovery of the body.
Ashley says Pettibone's family has been notified and that an autopsy will be conducted Thursday in Ottawa.
Police do not suspect foul play in his death.
Pettibone had been last seen at 7:30 a.m. on Monday when he left his home in Belleville to go to work at the Brockville Recorder and Times, where he is the sports editor.
