Police Probe Whether Body Belongs To Missing Canadian, Police in Hong Kong are investigating whether a body discovered in the city last Wednesday is a missing Canadian.

Police had earlier said Joseph Basha, a 25-year-old student from Newfoundland and Labrador, had disappeared on Dec. 21.

A police spokesman told The Canadian Press that on that same day, the body of a foreigner, aged 25 to 30, was found “collapsed in a public toilet.”

The spokesman said the “body had no identity documents” and the initial investigation suggested the death is not suspicious.

The missing man’s family has been asked to go to Hong Kong to identify the body and the spokesman adds some relatives have already arrived.

Messages of condolences, meanwhile, have been posted on a Facebook page dedicated to finding the 25-year-old student and musician.

On her page, Basha’s sister, Cindy, posted a message early Tuesday saying she regrets to say that her “beautiful, talented, sweet brother” was found dead last Wednesday.
