The RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance to locate the custodian of military service medals found near the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge.
The medals were provided to police by a member of the public who found a small box containing the items on July 28, 2016.
The police investigation has led to the identification of the recipients, however, RCMP investigators have not been able to determine who presently owns the medals.
Corporal Mike Rail, spokesperson of the UFVRD says the medals hold a special significance.
“The medals reach back to a time when the Dominion of Canada was forging an identity as a Nation within the British Empire… We feel the medals could be valuable family heirlooms and are reaching out to the public to assist us in returning them to those families.”
Anyone with information to aide police in the return of the medals to their current owner(s) is urged to contact the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211.
