A 78-year-old Campbell River hiker that was reported missing Thursday has been found dead.
The senior was first reported missing after he went out searching for mushrooms and did not return on time. He was last known to be in the Gosling Campground area off of the Lower Campbell River Lake.
Campbell River Search and Rescue was activated and found the man Friday morning on the shore of Lower Campbell River Lake.
Police say no foul play is suspected in the tragic incident and the investigation has been handed over to the B.C. Coroners Service.
