Stephen Robert Willemse

The search for  Stephen Willemse has ended tragically.

Willemse's truck was found in the MacLellan's Mtn. area by a hiker Sunday around 5:30 p.m. with a body inside believed to be Stephen Willemse.

“We believe it’s him,” said Sgt. Kevin Dunlevy. “We’re just working with the medical examiners office to confirm.”

Foul play is not suspected.

Pictou County RCMP, assisted by the Pictou County Ground Search and Rescue Team had been looking for Willemse since last week after his employer reported that he hadn’t shown up to work.
