The remains of Suleiman Khawar were recovered from False Creek yesterday, bringing a tragic end to an 11-day search that began when the Vancouver man went missing late last month.

Suleiman’s body was discovered by a boater near Granville Island just after 8:30 a.m. on Monday. The BC Coroners Service is now investigating.

The Vancouver Police extends condolences to Suleiman’s loved ones, and thanks all of the community members who came together to search for Suleiman after he went missing on May 25.

The Vancouver Police investigation into his disappearance remains open. Anyone who saw or interacted with Suleiman just before midnight on May 25, or in the early hours of May 26, is asked to called VPD’s Missing Person Unit at 604-717-2530 or email vpd.missing@vpd.ca.
