The RCMP is still trying to identify human remains from 24 years ago.

A local tour guide located human remains on the backside of Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park (via Cosmic Ray Road) on July 11, 1998.

Despite the ongoing investigation spanning over 20 years, the remains have yet to be identified.

DNA was obtained from the remains and has been uploaded into the National DNA Data Bank (NDDB).

Potential missing person’s files were also cross-referenced and ruled out by either DNA and/or dental records.

There are not any known missing person’s cases outstanding that match this particular case.

There were several items located in the area of the remains including keys with a War Amps key tag, pictures, and a wallet.

The summary of the Medical Examiner Forensic Anthropologist’s reports indicates the deceased is:
· An adult male
· Age range between 19-35, likely closer to 25
· 5'10" tall (177.8 cm +/-3.27 cm)
· Caucasian
· Time of death is greater than 2 years prior to 1998
· Male possibly had rickets in infancy

Two composite sketches have been done (in 2001 and 2018) in an effort to show what the male may have looked like.

Here's a description of items that were located in the area of the remains.
· Chrysler key (70’s-80’s, no vehicle was recovered)
· T.B. Vets tag with the Arms of B.C. (records are not kept prior to 1997)
· Black leather wallet with the word "Amity" in gold letters
· Pictures enclosed in the wallet
· Faint markings on the reverse side of the second partial photo contained the address 524 6 ieme ave Nord, St-Antoine, J7Z-5H9 (attached photo "Wallet Pic 2")

Banff RCMP is seeking assistance from the public in identifying the man's remains.

They have released photos of two composite sketch drawings, two photographs located in the wallet, a key tag insert, and keys attached.
