Canadian authorities are seeking to identify a human foot that washed ashore in British Colombia last year.
The left foot — found in a light grey Nike Free RN running shoe with a black Nike logo and white laces — was found on the West Vancouver shore in September 2018, according to the B.C. Coroners Service.
It’s the 15th time a human foot was found on one of the province’s shores, however, only 10 of the cases were solved and connected to missing persons.
“Typically, our process would be that we would work with any of the available information that we would find at a scene to help determine the identity, but, in this case, we’ve exhausted those options,” Andy Watson, a spokesperson for coroners service, told CBC News on Monday.
“So, now we’re turning to the public, in hopes that we can get some information to help create a match and determine the identification.”
The size 9.5 men’s shoe, which was manufactured in 2017, was found with an OrthoLite insert.
It is believed to belong to someone under 50 years old.
Watson told the CDC that feet are easily separated from the body, which is why they are usually found.
