Missing man found dead

The remains of a missing Kelowna man were found in Kamloops last week, but police don't believe there was any criminal activity involved in his death.

Martin Joseph Thiffault, 48, was last heard from on April 19 in Kelowna, and his disappearance was reported to police five days later.

Friday afternoon, a person came upon human remains along the banks of the Thompson River, near Kamloops Airport.

“RCMP can now confirm that the deceased individual has been positively identified by the Coroners Service as missing person Martin Joseph Thiffault,” says Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey of the Kelowna RCMP.

“At this time, there's no criminality suspected in Mr. Thiffault's death.”

Thiffault's family has been informed of his death.

The investigation has since been handed over to the BC Coroners Service.
