Police seek public assistance in locating owner of urn

A white container with ashes inside has been found in Green Timbers Park

Urn found containing cremains.

Police are looking to connect the ashes of a loved one with family, after an urn was found in a Surrey park last week.

On Sunday, May 3, a hiker called Surrey RCMP after finding an urn lying  in Green Timbers Urban Forest.

It was found a short distance off a main trail near the northwest corner of the lake, and south of the main entrance in the 14400-block of 100 Avenue.

The urn is white and has no distinguishable marks on it.

“If you recognize this urn or know who it belongs to, please contact the Surrey RCMP,” said RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “I’m sure if we could return the urn to its rightful owner it would be a great relief to them and their family.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. Quote file #2015-60901
