Share

Several police officers and emergency response personnel responded to reports of a possible body along the side of the road near Thornton that ended up being a false alarm.

Provincial police were called on Wednesday for a "suspicious object" in a creek and blocked off a section of the 10th Line near County Road 21 to investigate.

Police later said the potential body was a rolled-up carpet that had been tied down and used as a creek crossing.

They confirmed they did not find any evidence of a body.

Police cleared the scene and said the investigation was closed.
