Columbia Valley RCMP are seeking information about an unidentified male discovered in Invermere on the evening of Saturday, Aug. 1 by people who were walking by.

The man, who appears to be in his 20s with short black hair, was injured with serious head injuries.

The male was brought to Invermere & District Hospital where he was treated before being transported to Foothills Hospital in Calgary in a coma.

There was no identification on the male. A bike was discovered in the ditch, which is believed to belong to him, and is described as a black, 27-speed Norco Kokanee mountain bike with front and rear suspension, disc brakes and a red metal bike lock. The male had a green and black backpack and brown Dakota boots.

“We are at a loss,” Staff Sgt. Marko Shehovac said. “It’s unknown if bike accident, assault or car accident.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Columbia Valley detachment at 250-342-9292.
