The discovery was made after a man police described as a person of interest in the case turned himself in on Friday morning.

Assistant Supt. Sylvan McIntyre of the Royal Grenada Police Force said Akim Frank walked into a police station and was “assisting” with the investigation.

McIntyre said police believe that Frank may have information about Linnea Veinotte, who was reported missing Sunday, after she went for a jog with the family dog in St. George’s, the island’s capital.

On Thursday, police said they had located a vehicle believed to be connected to Veinotte’s disappearance – a damaged, dark grey Suzuki Escudo.

After Veinotte disappeared, her dog was found on the side of the road. It appeared that the dog had been struck by a car.

Veinotte, a 36-year-old mother of two young childrenwho works at St. George’s University, was born in New Brunswick and has a home in Nova Scotia. She’s been living in Grenada with her husband and children since July.
