Search team finds body of Patric Graham

Kitimat man reported missing nearly one month ago

The remains of Patric Graham were found in a wooded area in Kitimat

Police are confident human remains found in Kitimat are those of Patric Graham, a 58-year old local man reported missing nearly one month ago. The body was found in a wooded area near an urban part of the Kildala neighbourhood.

Sgt. Tracy Walbauer of the Terrace Conservation Officer Service has confirmed there was evidence at the scene of significant grizzly bear activity, but stressed there is no reason at this time to suspect a bear caused Graham’s death.

Foul play is not suspected.

Graham’s remains were found during a search organized Saturday morning. After a detailed review of the missing person file by the RCMP and Kitimat Search and Rescue, a strategic search plan identifying eight search areas was developed and executed. Twenty two members of KSAR participated in the search in high-priority areas.

At 10:30 a.m. a KSAR team located the remains. RCMP says they are believed to be of Patric Graham of Kitimat who was reported missing on September 7.

The B.C. Coroners Service has taken over the investigation.

More to come.
