Missing senior Joan Warren was found deceased Sunday Dec. 8.

Mounties in North Vancouver say a 76-year-old woman with dementia who went missing has been found deceased near the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge.

RCMP said a hiker in the area found Joan Warren’s body Sunday afternoon.

Warren was believed to have been outdoors the entire time she was missing and authorities said initial observations indicate the senior died of hypothermia.

Harsh winter temperatures dropping well below the freezing mark since last week have affected Vancouver.

An urgent and extensive search over the weekend was conducted to find the missing woman.

She was last seen alive at her seniors’ residence on Lynn Valley Road the morning of Dec. 6.
