The RCMP are not releasing any information about a man found in a burned-out vehicle near Hope until the victim has been positively identified.
Const. Tracy Wolbeck said Upper Fraser Valley RCMP are investigating the incident.
The family of Dan Rikkinen of Langley was told earlier this week that his truck had been found.
Rikkinen has not been seen or heard from since Nov. 22, when he spoke to various family members and made plans for the next few days.
His family has been plastering Langley and Maple Ridge with posters and pleading for public help in finding the 59-year-old father and grandfather.
