The B.C. Coroners Service and the West Vancouver Police Department are hoping the public can help them identify whose foot showed up on a local beach.
It was within a light grey Nike Free RN shoe on the shore near the 30th Street beach access point in West Vancouver.
The size 9.5 shoe was manufactured between February 1 and April 17, 2017, and has a white base and a black Nike swoosh. The foot was in a blue sock.
In a news release today, the B.C. Coroners Service said that a DNA analysis matched with files of missing people has not yielded a match.
The test revealed that the foot belonged to a male.
The B.C. Coroners Service's identification specialist believes that the foot belonged to a man under the age of 50, based on its bone structure.
According to the West Vancouver Police Department, there is no evidence of a death from foul play at this point.
"This is the 15th human foot found on British Columbia shorelines since August 2007," the B.C. Coroners Service news release stated. "Ten of these feet have been matched to missing persons, while five remain unidentified."More
