RCMP and B.C. Coroners Service are on the scene at Green Timbers Urban Forest after a Surrey resident made a shocking discovery Monday night.

A man was walking through the forest when he caught a glimpse of what he believed to human remains lying on the ground. Police were called, and they do not believe that foul play was a factor in the death.

"If it's discovered that foul play was involved [then] we'll reach out to the appropriate resources," said RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. "But at this point it's not being considered."

Paquet said "the condition of the body is consistent with having been there for an extended period of time," and so far no age, gender or cause of death has been determined.

More details to come as they become available.
