Rumours of a body found in the Fort St. James area are likely linked to bones found nearby nearly a month ago.

Hunters found remains wrapped in a tarp on the back side of Mount Pope and reported the discovery to RCMP.

The remains were tested and confirmed to be non human remains.

RCMP said it was likely a bear, which can appear similar to human remains when the hide has been removed.

Rumours were reported to have reached Vanderhoof of the discovery of a body in a dress, however RCMP say no such discovery has been made and the story is likely the confusion of the story of the Mount Pope remains.
