A young Kamloops man who has been missing for more than two weeks has been found dead, according to his family.
Jakob Gibbon, 22, was last seen on Dec. 28. His family said he left their North Shore home sometime after 11 p.m. that night and never returned.
In a post late Sunday night on social media, Gibbon’s sister-in-law said his body has been found.
“He was involved in a single-vehicle accident and his car was in a location that was not easily seen to anyone,” Diana Cattermole said in a post on a Facebook page set up to help find Gibbon.
“Unfortunately he did not survive. Our hearts are broken and we will now work on healing.”
Cattermole said the family is asking for privacy.
