In Vancouver, a man who disappeared while out with his friends has been discovered deceased. In Vancouver, authorities have announced the discovery of the remains of 36-year-old Irshaad Ikbal, who had been missing for three weeks. The search for Ikbal had been an emotionally taxing experience for those involved.
On Friday, May 19, the Vancouver Police Department released a statement indicating that the remains of Ikbal had been found in False Creek. The discovery was made on Thursday evening after a passerby contacted 911 to report the sighting near the Plaza of Nations.
After Vancouver Police officers brought him to shore, the BC Coroners Service has launched an investigation as the cause of death remains undetermined.
According to a release by the VPD, the department expressed its condolences to the family, friends, and community members who aided in the search for Irshaad following his disappearance on April 29th.
