Brook Morrison left home to go for a walk Tuesday evening

Police say they have found the body of an Abbotsford man missing since Tuesday.

In a news release issued Friday at noon, police said that “at approximately 11:45 am, Abbotsford Police and Search and Rescue volunteers located a deceased male in an area off Straiton Road.”

“It has now been determined that the deceased male is Brook Morrison,” police say. “Foul play is not suspected. This is a tragic outcome for a missing person investigation that began just over three days ago. The investigation has now been turned over to the BC Coroners Service. The Abbotsford Police Department extends condolences to the family and friends of Brook.”

Crews had been searching for the past two days. Earlier in the day, they had asked hikers to avoid trails around Ledgeview Golf Course.

Brook Morrison left his Clearbrook Road-area home around 5:45 p.m. to go for a walk. He hadn’t been seen since.

Police and Fraser Valley Search and Rescue had been searching in the Eagle Mountain area, based on location information from his phone.
