The BC Coroners Service and RCMP are asking for help to identify the remains of an adult male found last year in North Burnaby.

A release on Wednesday said the remains of a male between the ages of 40 and 60 at the time of his death were found on March 11, 2019 in a forested area.

It is estimated he may have gone missing around March 2013 and may have been in low spirits at the time.

Details from the investigation available on the Canada’s Missing website also indicate he had black hair worn in a ponytail, a black Pro Sport baseball cap, a black QUARTZ watch, black Club Monaco glasses, brown Columbia hiking boots, a yellow Steep Slopes jacket and a blue Pro Sport backpack.

Facial reconstruction images are also available on the website, created by students in a forensic sculpture workshop and 3D-printed by technicians from the National Research Council.
