The body of a missing 54-year-old Saanich woman has been found in Mount Douglas Park, and police say there are no signs of foul play.
“In the late afternoon hours, the body of a deceased female was located in a secluded beach area along the coastline of Mount Douglas Park,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. “It is with sadness that we advise that the body has been identified as that of Nancy Bayes … (who) was reported missing on April 1.”
Eassie said police and the B.C. Coroners Service will continue to investigate the death, but added there is no apparent risk to the public.
Bayes had last been seen at her residence in the area of Cook Street and Quadra Street last Wednesday. Her family has asked for privacy, Eassie said.
