The body of a man found on a rock ledge overlooking Kootenay Lake near Nelson has been identified as Dana Nicholas Mitchell of Cranbrook.

He went missing in the fall of 2010 and is believed to have died at that time, according to the BC Coroners Service. He was then 22.

His body was discovered by a tourist on July 23 of this year off the Burlington Northern trail near the Svoboda Road entrance above Nelson.

The coroner says there was identification on him, which was verified using dental records. The exact cause of death is still under investigation but foul play has been ruled out.
