BANFF — Skeletal remains found late last month near a hiking path in Banff have been identified as those of a developmentally-delayed Calgary man who was reported missing in mid-June.

RCMP say the remains scattered on Sulphur Mountain have been identified by the medical examiner in Calgary as 24-year-old Brendan Craig Davis.

Police are treating the case as suspicious because there’s no evidence of foul play, but the investigation continues.

His family reported Davis missing June 20 and said his disappearance was out of character.

His father, Steve Davis, said Brendan had mild autism, had been struggling at work and had moved in with a friend a short time before he disappeared.

The friend thought Brendan might have been with his father in Sundre, so it took a few days for someone to notice his disappearance.

The remains were found July 29 and the area was searched by police, but RCMP and two dozen search and rescue experts combed the area last week looking for evidence to explain the young man’s death.
