RCMP have confirmed to the World-Spectator that the vehicle found at Bangor on Monday was a Ford Escape. The information came from the provincial RCMP media relations department Wednesday morning.

Police aren't releasing any other details about the vehicle, but say they hope to have more information Friday when an autopsy is done on the human remains found at the site.

The provincial RCMP spokesperson would not confirm the color or any other details of the vehicle at this point.

At approximately 1:00 p.m on Monday, October 22nd, Esterhazy RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle located in the bush on an isolated, rural property near Bangor, Sask.

Preliminary investigation determined that a single vehicle travelling on a remote, gravel road appears to have gone through a T-intersection and into dense bush and was not immediately visible from the road.

The SUV had significant damage and a lone, deceased individual was located at the scene.

At this time, the identity and gender of the deceased have yet to be determined.

A forensic autopsy is scheduled for Friday, October 26th.

This investigation remains ongoing with assistance from the RCMP’s Forensic Identification Section (FIS), Major Crimes Unit (MCU) and Traffic Reconstruction.

At this time, RCMP say there is nothing to indicate that the death is suspicious in nature.

Ruby Barnes, who went missing from White Bear Lake June 18, was believed to have been driving a white 2013 Ford Escape when she went missing.
