Gordon Solloway, 74, went missing last Thursday morning after leaving his Hollywood Road South home. Family members say he was heading for the James Lake area, east of Kelowna.
Police say extensive searches were conducted along nearby forest service roads, but Solloway wasn’t found, and the search was suspended on Monday night.
But this week, the family said two hunters came across Solloway’s body.
“Last night at 11 o’clock, the RCMP came to the house and informed us that two hunters had found my dad,” Sheri Solloway, Gordon’s daughter, told Global News on Thursday morning.
Kelowna RCMP said Solloway was found on Wednesday, just after 8 p.m., on Victor Forest Service Road.
“At this time, criminality is not believed to be a factor in Mr. Solloway’s passing,” police said in a press release. “The BC Coroners Service is also investigating in an effort to determine his cause of death.
“Mr. Solloway’s family has been notified of his passing and the Kelowna RCMP Victim Services are continuing to support them.”
