An autopsy will be done today on a body found along the shore of Lake Ontario in Whitby.
Police have said they`re all but the certain the body is that of 52-year-old Jeffrey Boucher.
Detective Jeff Kennedy with Durham Regional Police says a man walking his dog along a road close to the shoreline made the discovery Saturday afternoon.
"His dog was in the water and he had looked towards where his dog was and discovered the body there", said Kennedy.
The body, partially encased in ice, was just outside the waters of Lake Ontario near Thickson Rd and Crystal Beach Blvd. It turned up about 200 yards to the west of where police had searched for Boucher. It isn't clear if the body had been in the same spot all along or was moved by currents.
The Whitby high school teacher disappeared on January 13th after going for his morning jog.
Police say an autopsy will confirm the I-D and determine cause of death, though they don't suspect foul play.
