A Coquitlam man who went missing nearly a month ago has been found dead.

Coquitlam RCMP confirmed Thursday morning that human remains found in a wooded area near Plateau Boulevard and Sugarpine Court on Monday, July 28, were those of Nicola Candeloro.

The 44-year-old father of four had left his Westwood Plateau home on the morning of July 3 to go for a walk in the Eagle Mountain area. He was spotted later that afternoon near the playing fields, and Coquitlam Search and Rescue was brought in to help with the search.

Crews covered a large wilderness area on Eagle Mountain throughout the weekend after he was reported missing but did not find him.

Police said foul play has been ruled out in Candeloro's death and the BC Coroners Service is handling the file.

His family has asked for privacy to grieve their loss.
