Missing boater's body found washed ashore

A missing boater from Brentwood Bay was found dead Tuesday (Jan. 3).

Police did underwater searches for two days in Tod Inlet after Timothy Hollands, 52, was reported missing on Dec. 26. The boat-dweller was last seen on Christmas Day rowing out to his home, moored near the mouth of Tod Inlet.

At the time, police believed he might have gone overboard. RCMP brought a boat and dive unit to search the area.

His body was discovered on shore near Sansum Narrows near Maple Bay.

“RCMP will be working with the coroner service to investigate the cause of death, however the investigation to this point still does not indicate any type of suspicious circumstances or foul play,” said Cpl. Chris Swain of Sidney North Saanich RCMP.
