Tsawwassen man’s body found by US Coast Guard

Delta man went missing on the night of Oct. 7 while retrieving crab traps

Cory Fergus

Delta Police have found the body of 43-year-old Cory Fergus, who disappeared last week while retrieving crab traps in Boundary Bay.

Canadian authorities were notified after the US Coast Guard found the body of an adult male in U.S. waters. Delta Police investigators joined the Canadian Coast Guard in a hovercraft to recover the body.

Police do not suspect foul play at this time, however police will work with the coroner to determine the cause of death.

Fergus was reported missing at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 7, but was last seen the night before at approximately 5:30 p.m. He left a friend’s residence in Tsawwassen and was believed to be heading to the Centennial Beach area of Tsawwassen to take his boat out and retrieve his crab traps.

Fergus had not been heard from since.  Police did locate his unoccupied vehicle parked at the boat ramp at Centennial Beach and conducted area searches of the immediate and surrounding area but came up empty.

The search was called off Oct. 9 after his empty canoe was located partially submerged in water.
