Police have confirmed that remains found near Quesnel are those of a missing man.

The man was reported missing to the Quesnel RCMP after possibly being abducted on the evening of May 4, 2020, according to an RCMP release.

The remains were found in a rural area of Quesnel on May 6, and investigators have now confirmed they are that of Louis Korkowski.

Criminality is suspected in his death and investigators continue to seek information related to Louis' whereabouts leading up to the discovery of his body and two vehicles of interest.

"If you have information which can assist in finding the person responsible for Louis' death, you are urged to call and speak to an investigator."

Korkowski is described as 5'4", 110 lbs. with short black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing black track pants with a white stripe, blue jacket and black Mulisha sweater.

The vehicles of interest are a 2003 green Ford Explorer and a 2007 grey Toyota Matrix.

The B.C. license plate on the Ford is KF087R. It has a roof rack, black tinted windows, grey five prong rims, chrome body trim and a dent in the passenger door.
