A body was pulled from Schwatka Lake Wednesday night.
The coroner says an autopsy is being performed but it is too early to confirm the man’s identity.
Police say they were called to the lake around 11 p.m. Wednesday night when someone spotted a body.
“Yukon Coroner’s Service confirms that the body is that of a male however the identity of the deceased has not yet been confirmed,” acting chief coroner Heather Jones said in a news release.
“An autopsy will be performed as the investigation continues.”
RCMP spokesperson Const. Julia Fox said it’s too early to talk about cause of death. Officers need to wait for the autopsy.
On June 15, police were called to Miles Canyon.
Witnesses reported a 19-year-old man had jumped or slipped from the cliff, near the bridge.
He has not been located since.
