Hope RCMP are looking for information regarding the death of Rory McGillivray.  He was last seen by a family member in Kamloops, on September 18, 2011.  On December 18, 2011, the Hope RCMP responded to a body found in the Fraser River. As a result of the investigation, the body was identified as Rory McGillivray.

McGillivray was 56 years old.

“Right now, we are attempting to establish a time line to fill in some gaps from the time McGillivray was reported missing to the time that he was discovered in the river,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  Police say McGillivray had purchased a bus ticket in Kamloops and was suppose to take the bus from Kamloops to Hope. The ticket was not for a specific date and it is unclear if or when Rory got on the bus.

It is believed that McGillivray may have resided somewhere in the Hope area but this has not yet been confirmed.

The police are not suspecting foul play is involved in Rory’s disappearance but they are looking for answers.

“We need to speak to anyone who has any information regarding Rory,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  “We are actively investigating Rory’s disappearance but need the help of the public at this point.”

If you have any information regarding Rory McGillivray, you are asked to contact the Hope RCMP at 604 869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
