The body of missing B.C. filmmaker Twyla Roscovich has been found, according to members of her family and RCMP.

“The search for filmmaker and activist Twyla Roscovich has ended on Friday, September 15th,” RCMP and the family said in separate statements.

The statements said the body was discovered near the Fisherman’s Wharf Marina in Campbell River.

“No foul play was suspected and we ask that the public respect the privacy of the family.”

Campbell River RCMP added that the Coroner’s office would now be taking over the investigation.

Roscovich was reported missing on Sept. 12 at 9 p.m., six days after her last sighting, when she said she was heading down Vancouver Island to seek medical treatment, according to the RCMP.

Twyla Roscovich has not been seen since last week.

The 38-year-old filmmaker had text messaged that she would be car camping and, perhaps, heading to Nanaimo.

She was last seen driving a green Volvo estate, police said.

The RCMP had confirmed that Roscovich was in the Quadra Island/Campbell River area on Sept. 7 and 8, but there was no known contact after these days.

This was considered “very much out of the ordinary for Roscovich,” the RCMP said in a news release.

An online fundraiser has been set up for Roscovich’s daughter.
