Kayakers find body in the Selkirk waterway

There's a heavy police presence on the Selkirk waterway this (Tuesday) afternoon after reports of a body being found.

Police were called to the scene after 2 kayakers spotted something in the water near the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club.

Witnesses say the kayakers towed something to a dock. That's where police were seen holding up a tarp, and examining something behind it.

It was earlier this month that police and dive teams were searching the Gorge in Esquimalt for a missing 26 year old man. 

Duncan Pucker was last seen at 3:30 a.m. Feb. 4 in the 900-block of Arm Street, near the waterway. No trace of him has been found.  

No one is saying if the victim found today is a male or female.

The BC Coroner's service has been made aware of the situation.
