The search for a missing Delta man came to a sad end Monday afternoon (Oct. 29).

The body of 87-year-old Edward Lysyk was discovered by police helicopter Air One around 3 p.m. in a field not far from his care home on the 3800 block of Arthur Drive in Ladner.

In a media release, Cst. Ciaran Feenan said Delta Police are currently working with BC Coroners Service to determine the cause of his death, but at this time do not believe foul play is involved.

Feenan said the department offers their sincere condolences to the man’s family, which has been notified of his death.

The former Richmond resident had recently moved to Ladner.
