The BC Coroners Service is investigating the discovery of human remains on Mount Seymour.

The service said the remains were found in a very isolated area of the backcountry on Sept. 1. It did not disclose the exact location.

There is no indication of how long the remains had been at the location, said the RCMP.

Mounties added that DNA testing was being undertaken to try and determine the person’s identity.

North Vancouver RCMP said the investigation remains in the hands of the coroners service at this point.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story incorrectly attributed statements regarding DNA and the location of the remains to the BC Coroners Service. In fact, the statements came from the RCMP.
