The body found in the Cowichan River Thursday has been confirmed as that of a Calgary man who went missing in April.
In press release issued this afternoon, the B.C. Coroners Service confirmed the body found by a fisherman just south of Spring Pool was that of William Shearer.
Shearer, 58, was visiting family in the Cowichan Lake area when he went missing late on the evening of April 13 after going out for a walk.
The investigation has ruled out any suggestion of foul play in the death.
