Police and volunteers expanded their search for Brett O’Grady to areas such as the Ottawa River last weekend after the 35-year-old disappeared early Thursday on the eastern edge of the city.
Police said they uncovered new leads Friday night that led to an enhanced search effort for O’Grady.
Volunteers and police searched the forest near Aviation Parkway and the Ottawa River over the weekend and a dive team was called in to search the water and shoreline area.
