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.

“RCMP Forensic officers and the BC Coroner’s Service attended and with the assistance of the RCMP Dive Team and the Langley City Fire-Rescue Service, retrieved the body,” 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.

“The Langley RCMP has confirmed the identity of the individual however no further details will be released pending notification of next of kin,” Pawar said.

A forensic autopsy is expected to be completed early this week.
