    Police and coroners have confirmed the human remains discovered on October 2 in Townsite are those of missing Powell River man Charles Yvon Mercier.


    Powell River RCMP constable Tim Kenning said even though police have identified the remains, many questions linger about Mercier’s death.

    “We’re looking for anyone with any information with regards to where they last saw Mercier and how we was,” said Kenning.

    The 35-year-old Powell River man was reported missing on September 22 and police employed aerial and ground searches three days later to try to locate the man.

    Mercier’s remains were discovered on October 2 near the Wildwood bridge alongside Powell River, but it is unclear how they were located, or by whom. The crime scene near the banks of the river was secured for a week while investigators scoured the area (...).

    The RCMP has not yet ruled out foul play in Mr. Mercier's death.
