Body found in Beasley

A 21-year-old man has been found deceased, the incident is not believed to be suspicious.

Police have not confirmed whether the body of a 21-year-old man found in Beasley is that of missing Australian man John Nichols.

A search and rescue team recovered the body last night in a wooded area. The incident is not believed to be suspicious.

Nichols was last seen on the morning of May 8. Friends believe Nichols must have left on foot because his bike and personal belongings were all left behind in his vehicle.  He  did not say anything about leaving or going anywhere, so his direction of travel was unknown.

Mike Hudson of South Columbia Search and Rescue told the Star this morning that an extensive search by 23 people over the last couple of days included working in treacherous river conditions and steep canyons in the area. He said the body was found in a wooded area some distance from the river.

Further details are not being released pending notification of family members. An investigation is underway by the British Columbia Coroners Service.
