The body of a missing man in West Kelowna has been found above the Shannon Lake area.
The 52 year old man’s family had reported him missing on Tuesday.
“During a search of their missing man’s home, our investigators discovered that his all-terrain-vehicle was unaccounted for,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey of the Kelowna RCMP. “This discovery prompted RCMP to call upon the support of Kelowna RCMP Air Services, and their valued partners with COSAR (Central Okanagan Search and Rescue), who were tasked with searching the wooded areas adjacent to their missing person’s property.”
Search and rescue volunteers located a deceased person around 10 pm Tuesday.
“RCMP have identified the deceased individual as their missing person and will continue to work closely with the BC Coroners Service. At this time, RCMP do not believe that criminality was involved in his death,” states O’Donaghey.
