Unidentified Cases: Requests for Public Assistance

The British Columbia Coroners Service, in conjunction with municipal police or RCMP, seek your assistance to help identify human remains. Each case presented may include retouched facial photographs, photographs of tattoos and distinguishing physical features and facial reconstructions. These fabricated images may not always resemble the person as they actually appeared during life and should be considered an approximation of their appearance. With your help, we hope to bring some closure to families who are searching for someone.

Only those cases where there is enough information available to the BC Coroners Service to develop a descriptive profile are presented in the database. The database does not contain all such investigations being conducted by the Office of the Chief Coroner. Should you have a query regarding any unidentified human remains investigations, please contact the Identification and Disaster Response Unit (IDRU) – 1 877 660-5077.
