RCMP have confirmed that human remains found in the woods near Whistler, B.C., are those of Mike Grefner, formerly of Red Deer.
The remains were found by hikers on Saturday and police say the level of decomposition made identification difficult.
Grefner, 34, was reported missing on Jan. 17 after he failed to show up for a shift at a nightclub where he was a DJ.
He grew up in Red Deer and moved to British Columbia about seven years ago to pursue his music career. He lived in the Rainbow subdivision, seven km north of the village.
