Human remains were found Saturday in the area of a popular walking spot near the Nicomekl River.
A man out for a walk in the 20700 block of 53A Avenue contacted the RCMP after seeing what he believed to be a human body near the Nicomekl River, according to Sgt. Ravi Pawar.
â€œRCMP Forensic officers and the BC Coronerâ€™s Service attended and with the assistance of the RCMP Dive Team and the Langley City Fire-Rescue Service, retrieved the body,â€ he said.,
The Langley RCMP brought in Fraser Valley Search and Rescue to assist with an evidence based search of the area because of the terrain along the river.
â€œThe Langley RCMP has confirmed the identity of the individual however no further details will be released pending notification of next of kin,â€ Pawar said.
A forensic autopsy is expected to be completed early this week.
