VANCOUVER – The Vancouver Police are hoping the public can help them locate the family of Joerg Brylla.

The 69-year-old, of no fixed address, was found dead in his tent at Oppenheimer Park on the same day the campers were being evicted.

He was known to his friends in his community as ‘Bunny George.’

The BC Coroners Service has ruled out foul play but his death remains under investigation.

If anyone is aware of family members of Joerg Brylla, they are asked to contact the Vancouver-Metro Region of the BC Coroners Service at 604-660-7708.
