The RCMP says no charges will be laid following its investigation into a potential abduction in Saskatchewan.

Officers say they were called to a wooded area within the city Tuesday evening for a report of a deceased man.

A member of the Prince Albert RCMP, who was not on duty at the time, was arrested.

RCMP said they were concerned for a 30-year-old woman's wellbeing.

His death is being investigated as a homicide and an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday. He is to appear in Prince Albert court on Thursday.

Investigators said the alleged killing took place while the officer was off duty, but few details have been released.

Police have also confirmed the officer and the male victim are known to each other, but have not released any names.

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) of the Prince Albert Police Service is leading the investigation.

Tebbutt wouldn't confirm whether the RCMP officer is a man or a woman, but confirmed the individual is stationed with the Prince Albert detachment.

Saskatchewan RCMP did not respond to a request for comment. "Contraventions to the RCMP Code of Conduct are taken seriously and a modification to the member's duty status is now being processed".

"Public trust is essential for the RCMP to effectively serve and protect Canadians".

The RCMP said any information relating to the arrest and criminal investigation will be released by the Prince Albert Police Service.
