Kyung Chun

Body discovered north of Nakusp

Police have not yet confirmed that a body discovered Sunday in the Fosthall area is that of a missing Burnaby man.

A body has been discovered in the Fosthall area where a 71-year-old Burnaby man went missing last month while mushroom picking.

RCMP say on Saturday a dog handler searching the area north of Nakusp found a hat believed to belong to Kyung Chun.

Then yesterday Nakusp Search and Rescue, with the help of the police dog service, found a man’s body in the bush, about 40 meters back of a spur road which dissected the road where hunters reported finding a van stuck in the mud.

RCMP say there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body and foul play is not suspected. However, the body has not been positively identified and the case has been referred to the BC coroners service.
