A Chilliwack senior, missing since Oct. 3, has been found dead in his vehicle at the bottom of a steep embankment in Abbotsford.

The body of Cyril Williams was found Wednesday afternoon on Sumas Mountain Road in Abbotsford by a tow truck driver who was attending a different motor vehicle accident at the same location.

Investigators have determined that Williams’ vehicle went off the road to the right and down a 10 foot embankment.

“Although this is not the outcome anyone was hoping for, Cyril’s family now has some closure and can begin to move forward,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.

WIlliams was 78.

The Abbotsford Police Department currently has conduct of the investigation.
