Michael Gregory Widner, a Sooke man who has been missing since Wednesday, has been found dead, his family says.
“They’re waiting for an autopsy, that’s all I know,” said his brother Shawn Widner, who lives in Calgary. “He’s a wonderful father and a great brother and I’m devastated.”
Sooke RCMP confirmed a body was found by a hiker Sunday near Port Renfrew, but would not confirm if it was Widner’s remains. The identity of the body has not yet been established, said Sooke RCMP detachment commander Sgt. Jeff McArthur.
The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit and B.C. Coroners Service are investigating. Police have not said if they’re treating the death as a homicide.
