The search for a body in the water off the Gabriola Island is now over.
RCMP Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong says they found a woman in the vehicle that smashed through a steel barrier at the ferry terminal and off the dock early yesterday morning.
"The RCMP dive team with the assistance from the RCMP West Coast Marine patrol vessel Hickett and Canada Border Services Agency were able to enter the vehicle and recover the body at approximately one pm today"
Armstrong says the name of the 32 year old from Gabriola Island is not being released at her family's request.
As foul play is not suspected the case is now in the hands of the coroner.
Dive teams are not retrieving the vehicle.
