A 52-year-old man who went missing while hiking in Manning Park has been found dead near Snass Mountain, according to Vancouver police.

Andriy Fendrikov was reported missing earlier this week when he didn’t show up for work. Another hiker subsequently reported seeing him in Manning Park.

“This is a tragic ending, and certainly not the outcome we had hoped for,” said Sgt. Steve Addison. “Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Andriy Fendrikov, and we’re thankful to everyone who assisted in the search.”

Fendrikov was described as an avid hiker with a lot of backcountry experience.

Vancouver police led the investigation because at the time of his disappearance the last place he was seen was in Vancouver.
