Gabriola RCMP are working with the B.C. Coroners Service after a human foot was found on Gabriola Island on Sunday afternoon.

According to the RCMP, the remains were found just after noon while a man was walking on the beach near South Road and came upon what appeared to be a human foot inside a hiking boot that was lodged in a logjam.

The Nanaimo RCMP Forensic Identification Service and the coroners service attended the location later the same day. No further remains were located and the Gabriola RCMP will continue assisting the B.C. Coroners Service with its investigation to try to determine the identity of the remains.
