The Mission Creek Greenway was closed off south of K.L.O. Road Saturday morning as a number of police and fire crews canvassed the area.

While police have yet to respond to Castanet's inquiry about the incident, a resident in the area said she saw emergency crews remove a body from the area, about 200 metres south of K.L.O. Road. She said the BC Coroners Service was on scene as well.

Another resident said emergency vehicles were driving up and down the greenway path for several hours, beginning at 7 a.m. By 11 a.m., the emergency crews had left the area, and the Greenway path had reopened.

Castanet will update this story as more information becomes available.
