Sister confirms remains found near Ucluelet were Ryan Daley and Dan Archbald

The remains were discovered by a woman walking her dog near Ucluelet sometime between June 11-15.

Ryan Daley’s sister Lauren Glynn has confirmed the remains found near Ucluelet were her brother Ryan Daley and his friend Dan Archbald.

Neither the BC RCMP nor the BC Coroners Office has identified the remains, but Glynn told the Westerly News Thursday night that the family has been notified they were the two men.

Daley and Archbald were reported missing on May 27 after their family and friends had not heard from them for several weeks. They were last seen leaving the dock at Ucluelet’s inner boat basin on foot on May 16. They had arrived in Ucluelet on May 13 after a roughly eight-week sailing trip from Panama.

Police say the remains were discovered by a woman walking her dog near Ucluelet sometime between June 11-15, but have not specified the location or date of the discovery.
