The body of a Whitehorse man who had been missing for more than seven months was recovered Tuesday afternoon.
Jeremy Scurvey was last seen Oct. 10 in the Yukon River near the end of Lambert Street. Witnesses called the RCMP and Yukon Search and Rescue looked for the 25-year-old, but he was not found.
Yukon’s chief coroner Kirsten Macdonald said two people found human remains Tuesday in the area of Burma Road at the Yukon River.
The remains were officially identified as Scurvey on Wednesday and his family was notified, Macdonald said.
An autopsy has not been scheduled, the coroner said.
