The body of Nikolas Ruddel, missing for ten days, has been recovered from the water at the Queen Charlotte floats.
Mr. Ruddel, 40, who lived on his boat at the floats, was last seen alive in June 9. An RCMP dive team located his body Thursday June 19 in about 25 feet of water, just below his boat. It’s believed that he accidentally fell into the water, and there is no indication his death is suspicious, according to police.
The coroner’s office is investigating and the RCMP continue to look into the death as well.
Mr. Ruddel was reported missing June 15.
