The BC Coroners Service, assisted by the Sea to Sky RCMP Detachment and BC Police Missing Persons Centre, is hoping someone can help them identify a man whose body was found in a heavily wooded area approximately eight kilometres north of Whistler on April 26.
The man is known to have bought food items at the Nesters Market in Whistler on Nov.13, 2013; he is thought to have perished shortly after. He may have suffered from emotional stress at the time of his disappearance.
The man was found near a mountain-bike trail within 200 metres of Highway 99 near the midpoint of Green Lake. There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
A Caucasian, he is estimated to be between 50 and 65 years of age. He has long grey hair held in a short ponytail with a "scrunchie." He is between 5'6" and 5'10" tall and has a medium build. He has no remarkable scars or tattoos.
He was wearing a heavy black three-quarter-length winter coat with a fur-trimmed hood, under which he wore a dark-blue fleece hoodie with bright yellow "NAVY" lettering emblazoned on the chest.
The man was also wearing black "Sportec" jogging pants and Sorel winter boots size 11L. He was also in possession of bifocal glasses.
Among the personal effects recovered at the scene was a dark backpack with a yellow "Academy of Learning" logo.
Anyone with information which may help identify this man is asked to call the Regional Coroner, Claire Thompson, at 604 660-7735 or Sea to Sky RCMP at 604 932-3044.
