Police would not confirm the boy’s identity, but Hanson posted to the Facebook group dedicated to the search, saying it was Kaden.
Hanson said funeral arrangements are now being made, and she will post details on the page when they are confirmed.
Richard Croft, a co-ordinator who helped organize the daily searches, said in a Facebook Live video that he was returning to his day job after spending the last two months trying to find Kaden.
“We have completed our search, and I just want to take a minute to thank everyone who came out for the search efforts,” said Croft, who also thanked the search team leaders, provincial police, and local businesses who all helped support the efforts.
Residents from communities all over southern Ontario looked tirelessly for Kaden even as the months went on, Croft said, adding that hundreds of volunteers showed up on Easter weekend to help.
