The BC Coroners Service needs help identifying the 15th foot that washed up on one of the province’s shores.
The left foot was found wearing a light grey Nike Free RN shoe with a black Nike swoosh logo and white base, white laces and a blue sock.
It washed up at a beach in West Vancouver on Sept. 3, 2018. Police do not suspect foul play.
DNA analysis and other tests have failed to produce an identiy, the coroners service said Monday, though it was confirmed it is a man’s foot.
The shoe was a men’s size 9.5, manufactured between Feb. 1 and April 17 2017, in relatively new condition with an OrthoLite insert.
“Based on the bone structure of the foot, the coroners service’s identification specialist believes the age at death is under 50,” a release said.
