Police have identified the remains discovered last month in Likely as that of missing man, Gary Price.

Price, who was 60 years old at the time of his disappearance, had been missing since Feb. 23, 2013.

RCMP Cpl. Dave Tyreman, District Advisory NCO, said in a news release that the disappearance of Price is suspicious in nature and the police investigation into his death is active and ongoing.

On Sept. 19 the Williams Lake RCMP received a complaint of human remains located on a local property in Likely.

The North District Major Crime Unit (NDMCU), working in partnership with the BC Coroner Service, positively identified the found remains as Price, however, offered few other details surrounding the case.

Price lived in a remote area past Yank’s Peak, a popular destination for snowmobile enthusiasts northeast of Likely, and was reported missing by a family member. An extensive search effort followed.

If you, or anyone you know, may have any information about the disappearance of Price that has not previously been reported, please contact RCMP Sgt. Randy Bosch of the NDMCU at 250-649-3909 or contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
