Police reported Sunday that they found a missing Mirror man dead in his vehicle near Nevis.

Bashaw RCMP said William (Bill) Graham, 66, who went missing July 27 after he left the Alix dump, was found dead in his pickup truck.

“A full investigation is being conducted by the RCMP, (but) foul play is not suspected,” RCMP Sgt. Patricia Neely said in a news release.

“RCMP would like to thank members of the public for their assistance in this matter.”

Graham’s case was the second missing person’s report that Bashaw RCMP issued last week.

An 85-year-old Calgary woman who left the Bashaw Valley Lodge on foot last Tuesday was located safely a day later, RCMP reported.

“Bashaw RCMP have found Maria Abutal alive and well near Bashaw (on Wednesday),” RCMP Const. Charla Ethier said in a news release Friday.

“Police would like to thank the assistance of the general public and all other involved agencies who helped with the search for Abutal,” one of the Calgary seniors residing at the lodge temporarily because of the southern Alberta flooding.
