Body of missing youth found

“We are profoundly saddened by this discovery, our deepest sympathy is extended to Jake’s family”

A body discovered in West Kelowna Saturday has been positively identified and the RCMP have now handed the investigation over to the BC Coroners Service.

On Aug. 12 just before 11 a.m., RCMP responded to the 3200 block of Cougar Road after being informed of the discovery of a deceased individual in a wooded area alongside MacDougall Creek in West Kelowna.

“RCMP can confirm that the deceased male has now been positively identified, by the BC Coroners Service, as missing youth, Jake Fehr,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

“We are profoundly saddened by this discovery, our deepest sympathy is extended to Jake’s family and friends during this difficult time.”

Fehr’s family has respectfully requested that their privacy be respected during their time of grief.

West Kelowna RCMP continue to assist the BC Coroners Service in their ongoing investigation into Jake’s death, which is believed not to be suspicious in nature. Further media inquiries are to be directed to the BC Coroners Service.
