Body of missing man located in the river valley; foul play not suspected

Following a search of the river valley Wednesday morning the body of a male was located behind the Heritage Heights subdivision beneath the High Level Bridge.

Police have confirmed the body is that of 46-year-old Mark Alexander Symons who was previously reported missing.

An autopsy is expected to take place this week at the Medical Examiner’s office in Calgary, however there is no evidence to date to suggest foul play.

As this matter does not appear to be criminal in nature, no further information will be released.

Police wish to thank the Lethbridge and Area Search and Rescue Association (LASARA) for their assistance in this investigation. Police also thank the public for the tips that were provided.
