Coroners are appealing for the public’s help to identify the person whose foot washed ashore in Vancouver last year, the 15th to turn up in northwest Canada since 2007.The foot, believed to be male, was in a light grey Nike Free RN trainer with a black Nike swoosh logo and white base, white laces and a blue sock.But authorities have not been able to establish who the person is after the limb was discovered on the British Columbia shoreline.Pictures of the shoe, which was found at Vancouver’s 30th Street beach entry point in September, were released by the British Columbia Coroners Service (BCCS).The shoe is a men’s US size 9.5 with an OrthoLite insert. It was manufactured between 1 Feb and 17 April 2017 and appeared to be in relatively new condition. Using DNA evidence, the BCCS has determined the latest foot is that a man’s but they have not been able to match it with any of the DNA profiles on file for missing persons.Based on the bone structure of the foot, the service’s identification specialist believes the man was under 50 when he died.
