Miles Meester’s body has been found.

It was discovered on the southeast part of Cortes Island near Manzanita Road Thursday evening.

Corporal Sean Bulford with the Quadra Island RCMP is “confident” the body is that of the missing 20-year-old Cortes Island man.

A post on a website dedicated to finding Meester confirms it’s him.

“We are sad to let you all know that yesterday our beautiful Miles’ body was found. Thank you so much for all of your love. We are devastated but also at peace knowing that he is not lost anymore. I will write more when I can, thank you so much for all of your help and all of your support. This community is incredible!”

Meester was last seen on Feb. 6th after he left his Mansons Landing home on foot.  He was not appropriately dressed for the weather.

The BC Coroners Service is now investigating.
