The British Columbia Coroners Service and RCMP say they’re stumped about the identity of a skeleton found in Anmore on the northern outskirts of Metro Vancouver.

According to the coroners service, the remains were found in December and despite the use of DNA testing the identity of the person, discovered by a hiker, is still unknown.

“This individual is of undetermined ancestry and is estimated to have been between 45 and 65 years of age when he died,” said a news release. “He has likely been missing for several years.”

The service said that at some point the man would have suffered a severe injury to his face, as it appears the skull had major surgery in the 1980s or ‘90s.

Coquitlam RCMP are asking the public for help identifying the person.
