The remains of a hiker missing since May have been found.
In a Sept. 15 press release, the Calgary Police Service (CPS) announced the remains of 68-year-old Stanley Stooshinoff were located.
Stooshinoff was declared missing when his SUV was found by the RCMP parked by Sandy McNabb campground after leaving his home on the morning of May 19.
Believed to have been hiking in the Sheep River Provincial Park area, extensive search efforts were conducted for Stooshinoff by numerous organizations, including Foothills Search and Rescue, the RCMP, and CPS.
The remains of Stooshinoff were discovered on Wednesday, Sept. 8 and positively identified by the Officer of the Chief Medical Examiner.
He was discovered by hunters west of Sandy McNabb Campground near the Foran Grade trailhead, said Turner Valley RCMP Staff Sgt. Laura Akitt, approximately 1.6 kilometres north of Highway 546.
"My condolences go out to the family," Akitt said. "It's not the results any of us were hoping for, but hopefully it will help give the family some closure.
"The support from Search and Rescue and all the supporting agencies was amazing, and I want to thank everybody for their assistance in our initial search."
As the death was not considered suspicious, CPS and RCMP have stated they will be releasing no further information.
