This bicycle and two shirts belonged to a man that was found dead at a makeshift campsite east of Revelstoke last week.

The RCMP are looking for help to determine the identity of the man who was found dead at a makeshift campsite near Revelstoke last week.

RCMP say a group of sightseers found the body in a forested area just off the Trans-Canada Highway about four kilometres east of Revelstoke on Friday, Aug. 26.

“The man was camping in the area when he passed away. His unfortunate death is not suspicious,” stated the RCMP in a news release. “It is believed that the man was transient, who travelled by way of bicycle during the day and camped at night.”

Police estimate he died some time in late July.

He is described as:

slim build

height approx 5’4″ (165 cm)

blond hair

red ball cap

bifocal glasses

black T-Shirt with a white silk-screened logo of “Roughnecks”

lumberjack style long sleeved shirt

tan coloured hiking shoes

white socks pulled up to his shins

blue jeans rolled-up to appear as shorts

He rode a Super-Cycle bicycle with a front basket and rear fender that he used to carry his camping gear.

The RCMP is hoping someone will come forward with the man’s identity so they can notify the man’s family of his death, said Cpl. Thomas Blakney.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cpl. Blakney at 250-837-5255.
