Police have located the body of a missing Winnipeg teen, officers confirmed on Sunday, bringing an end to a desperate week-long search.
Family members called off the hunt for Cooper Nemeth late Saturday night.
In a tweet, Nemeth's aunt, Laresa Sayles, said there would be no search on Sunday, and that the family would release a statement in the next few days.

Nemeth, 17, was last seen early in the morning on Feb. 14, after leaving a party in Winnipeg's Valley Gardens neighbourhood.
On Saturday night, law enforcement officers gathered in the neighbourhood but could not confirm if the heavy police presence was linked to the missing teen.
Police have scheduled a briefing for later on Sunday, when more details are expected to emerge.
