Human remains found on Prince George trail

Two hikers stumbled upon decomposing human remains just off a popular local trail in Prince George on Monday, police said.

Prince George RCMP say the remains, which appears to have been there for a "significant amount of time" due to the level of decomposition, were found in a wooded area off the Greenway Trail system, west of Tyner Boulevard.

Investigators are working to determine the identity of the remains and the cause of death.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or anonymously through CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
