Penticton RCMP releasing info on historical missing person and found human remains investigations

Over the course of the next six weeks the Penticton RCMP said they are going to be releasing information on a series of historical missing person and found human remains investigations.

In the afternoon on Feb. 14, 1982, a person walking their dog came across a body of an unidentified infant female on Skaha Beach near the Okanagan River Channel.

It was believed the infant had been in the water for several days and was washed ashore. There were no signs of physical trauma. Officers found no leads by investigating recent births at the Penticton Hospital.
