The B.C. Coroners Service is asking for the public’s help in identifying a human foot that washed up a West Vancouver beach last year.

The foot was inside a Nike sneaker found along the shoreline at the 30th Street beach access, south of Marine Drive and 30th Street, in September 2018.

This is the 15th human foot found on B.C. shorelines since August 2007. Ten of those feet have been identified as belonging to seven people who died by accident or suicide, while five remain unidentified.

Using DNA evidence, the coroners service has determined the latest found foot is that of a man but they have been unable to match it with any of the DNA profiles on file for missing persons.

Based on the bone structure of the foot, the coroners service’s identification specialist believes the age at death is under 50.
