The search for a missing seven year old boy has come to a tragic end.
A body was found in the waters of Echo Lake on Sunday morning. Upon being called out to the scene, RCMP in Fort Qu’Appelle were able to determine the body was that of Greagan Geldenhuys.
The boy was last seen August 24 along with his mother, Tamaine Geldenhuys, on a beach near Fort Qu’Appelle. Tamaine’s body was found just a day later.
“It started off as a tragic event that just even got worse,” said Sergeant Drew Wagner. “It’s never an easy thing to lose a family member, let alone two of them.”

A sudden death investigation has been launched, with Wagner saying the next step in it is to perform an autopsy on the boy’s body to determine the cause of death.
Wagner also notes that in this point in time, no foul play is suspected in Greagan and Tamaine Geldenhuys’ deaths.
“We still believe that both mother and son were at the B-Say-Tah beach partaking in beach activities,” said Wagner.
