CAREERS Police have identified the body found in the Rideau River on May 12 as that of Michael Pineau, a 19-year-old Nepean resident who went missing from his Chesterton Drive home in March. The family has declined to talk to the media, but did offer a public statement. “Our family is devastated. We lost an amazing, talented, extremely generous and intelligent son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin,” the statement reads. Police received the dental records of Pineau on May 17 and announced the identification two days later. Friends and family launched a large scale search for the missing teen after he left a house party in his home on March 15. Pineau had been drinking and was joking with a young woman when she slipped and fell on the ice. Friends said he had feelings for the woman and was distressed by the incident. His roommates and friends thought he would just cool off and come back, but no one had heard from him since. Pineau’s mother Liz came to Ottawa from the family’s hometown of Mattawa, Ont. a few days into the search and helped her daughter Miriam to coordinate hundreds of friends and volunteers in a city-wide search for her son. “We have been just wowed by the support we have received from people in Ottawa helping us in the search,” Liz said, 10 days after her son’s disappearance. Michael was officially reported missing on March 16, but by then police decided it was too late for a ground search, so they started monitoring his credit and debit cards and posting pictures from Ottawa to Montreal and Toronto.
