PORT COQUITLAM Coquitlam Mounties were offering few details about a body discovered floating in the Pitt River in Port Coquitlam Wednesday morning.
The body was found at 7 a.m. by someone on the water, not far from shore near Harken Towing.
By noon, a tarp was still visible at the edge of a dock on the Argue Street businesss property.
Police cant say how long the body might have been in the water, the gender or if foul play was involved.
There isnt a lot of information at this point, RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung told the media Wednesday afternoon.
He did note the body was found in the river and then brought closer to shore.
Mounties said it could be quite some time before they identify the body if no identification can be found.
Chung said investigators would also be looking at recent cases of missing people as part of the investigation.
Normally, we would try to match what we find with the other missing [people] that have been reported to us. That is something well be looking at, he said.
Investigators were expected to remain on the scene for much of Wednesday.
