While a complete determination has yet to be made, police do not believe criminality was involved in Foan’s sudden death. The BC Coroners Service is also investigating.

It’s not clear from where police recovered Foan’s body.

Mounties said they are not releasing further information at this time.

Foan was last seen on June 28.

He had met a friend for coffee at the Tk’emlúps Tim Hortons restaurant at Highway 5 and Shuswap Road. The two men left the restaurant, with Foan riding off on his motorcycle south on Highway 5 and merging onto Highway 1 westbound toward Sahali and Aberdeen.

Later that day, at about 2:30 p.m., Foan was seen at the Westsyder Pub in Westsyde, but did not arrive home and his whereabouts remained unknown.

Police issued a missing person report on June 30 and reiterated their public plea for information on July 6.

Friends of Foan papered the city with posters and created a Facebook page — Searching for Mark Foan — to gather information.
