Surrey RCMP is seeking to find the owner of an urn found in South Surrey's Redwood Park earlier this year.

On March 6, a woman walking in the park – located near the 17900-block of 20 Avenue – discovered the urn in a small hole under a tree.

The urn is silver with blue markings, and has birds engraved on it. As well, a label on the bottom has the name "Ken Peters" on it.

“Our investigation so far has failed to locate anyone we can connect with the urn,” says Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet.

“We are releasing this information to the public as we want to ensure we are doing everything possible to reunite the urn with a family member or close friend.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 quoting the file number 2014-31130 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
