A body believed to be that of 26 year old Warren Andrew Sill, an American from Ohio, has been recovered in the Gull Creek area near New Hazelton.
On July 10, 2012, New Hazelton RCMP received a complaint of an abandoned vehicle parked at Gull Creek.
RCMP identified the owner of the blue/grey Pontiac Torrent SUV Ohio plate EGW1699, as 26 year old Warren Andrew Sill from Ohio.
Police spoke to the family who stated their son was in the area to make a documentary on the Spirit Bear and they had last spoken to him on July 4, 2012.
RCMP confirmed the vehicle had been parked at the entrance of the Whiskey Creek Trail since July 5, 2012.
Sill had told family and friends that he would be exploring for four to five days, but RCMP learned that he was not a seasoned outdoors man and search and rescue were contacted.
The RCMP reports that all circumstantial evidence points to the body as being the missing hiker, but the B.C. Coroners office is waiting for dental records to confirm identity.
