RCMP say they have recovered the remains of a Penticton man whose abandoned vehicle was found in Manning Park earlier this month.

RCMP said the man had been missing since June 30. His vehicle was abandoned in Manning Park on July 15, and was located in the park by search-and-rescue volunteers on Friday.

Investigators are working to determine how the man died but at this stage, they “do not believe that criminality was involved in the man’s sudden death,” RCMP said in a statement.

Manning Park is where a young Newfoundland man went missing last fall.

Jordan Naterer, 25, was reported missing on Oct. 12, after he didn’t return from a solo hiking trip in the provincial park.

A search for Naterer ensued but was eventually called off. His family coordinated an extensive effort to keep looking for him, with volunteers scouring park trails.

Earlier this month, Naterer’s family said a volunteer searcher had found what they believe are his remains.
