Neighbours and another person close to the case of a missing Port Moody woman whose remains were later found say her husband was the person arrested by police Friday afternoon.
Trina Hunt, 48, was reported missing from her house in the city’s Heritage Mountain neighbourhood by her husband, Iain Hunt, on Jan. 18, 2021.
Her disappearance triggered a months-long search involving hundreds of people, co-ordinated through social media.
Her remains were found in an area south of Silver Creek in Hope, B.C., just over two months later. The RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) subsequently took over the case.
On Friday afternoon police returned to the couple’s house and arrested a man but did not identify him or confirm if any charges had been recommended to prosecutors.
IHIT said Friday it would not release any names as charges have not been laid.
IHIT said more details will be provided Saturday or later in the weekend.
