The body of a Central Saanich man who went missing in early summer was found last week.

On Dec. 11, 59-year-old Bruce Sheppard’s body was found in the Port Renfrew area after he’d been missing for over five months. Police say foul play is not suspected in Sheppard’s disappearance or death.

“His body was found by forestry workers in the woods,” explained Central Saanich Police Corporal Pat Bryant.

Police had reached out to the public in the summer, asking those traveling remote areas of the Island to keep an eye out for Sheppard or his white Jeep. At that point, police believed Sheppard could have been camping alone, but his lack of communication with his family was uncharacteristic.

Sheppard’s family was notified of the discovery by police. He had not been heard from since June 22.
