Body of Missing Man Recovered

Quesnel, B.C. – The body of  the registered owner of a vehicle  that  went  into the Quesnel River a little over a week ago,  has been discovered in the Hope/Agassiz area.

The B.C. Coroner’s service says the body of 49 year old  Heath Onstine  was discovered  Monday in Johnson Slough  along the Fraser River.

Onstine had been visiting Quesnel from Ft. St. John, when  in the early hours of  June 14th,  his vehicle  went into the  Quesnel River .

Police  did discover a  license plate belonging to the vehicle registered to  Mr. Onstine, and all attempts to locate him  turned up negative.  Police were not able to  conduct an underwater search to  confirm  the  suspected  incident because the river was running too high and too fast to allow for a safe  search operation.




Condolances to this man’s family and friends. At least now they can have some closure.
