NIAGARA FALLS – North Tonawanda police Tuesday said that a body pulled from Canadian side of the Niagara River this weekend has been positively identified as Douglas Vaillancourt, a 23-year-old North Tonawanda man who was reported missing last week when he failed to report to his job at the Niagara Falls Post Office.

North Tonawanda Police Capt. Thomas Krantz said the body was recovered Saturday and dental records were provided.

“There was no evidence to suggest any foul play,” Krantz said.

Krantz said Vaillancourt had recently started his job for the U.S. Post Office and had reported to his second job as a valet at the Seneca Niagara Casino the night before he was reported missing.

North Tonawanda Police joined State Parks Police in a search for Vaillancourt, who was listed a missing person last Wednesday. Krantz said his car was found that morning in a parking lot, adjacent to Niagara Falls State Park.
