A Windsor-area man who went missing after going overboard a Toronto Island ferry over the weekend was located deceased on Wednesday morning.

Ivan Bruno Ujevic was last seen at Hanlan’s Point around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday. A family member told CityNews he was at the Electric Island celebrations with some friends but fell ill and left early.

Police said they received reports the 22-year-old either fell or jumped off the ferry shortly after departing the island.

A search by the marine unit failed to turn up any sign of Ujevic on Sunday night and a search on Monday had to be called off early due to the CNE air show. The search resumed again Wednesday morningĀ and he was found.

Ujevic’s brother Ante Ujevic said his brother fell into the water some 50 metres away from the shore.
