Tofino search and rescue has found the body of a man whose capsized canoe was found Thursday between rocks near Tofino.
The body of Gabriel Lavoie was found Friday on Felica Island, just north of Tofino. The cause of his death is unknown, but foul play is not suspected. The BC Coroner's Service is involved in the investigation.
Lavoie was last seen leaving his waterfront Tofino residence in a canoe on Thursday at noon. His friends became concerned when they did not hear from him later in the day.
The canoe was found capsized between two rocks within the island in a Tofino inlet and police were notified.
