Coquitlam Mounties aren’t saying much about the investigation, other than there is no indication foul play was involved.

On Monday, investigators were still working to identify the body.

There was no indication just how long the body had been out in the woods before being found.

However, RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung noted the body is not of high profile missing person Shin Noh.

Noh, 64, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, was last seen by his wife on the morning of Sept. 18 before he left his house near Lansdowne Drive and Guildford Way for his morning walk.

Following his disappearance, large search parties were organized around the community to help find the missing senior.

In recent weeks the search has expanded beyond the Tri-Cities through Metro Vancouver.

Noh is still missing and his family continues to search for him.
