RCMP say a body pulled from a New Brunswick river is that of a woman reported missing last week.
Police and emergency crews responded to reports of a body floating in the Petitcodiac River near the causeway bridge in Riverview shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday.
The body of Tiffany Yvonne Mertin was recovered around 11 a.m.
The 41-year-old Moncton woman was last seen alive on June 30 as she left her home in the Jones Lake area.
She was reported missing on Friday.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday to establish a cause of death.
