The remains of a second person have been uncovered at the site of a landslide in southeastern B.C. that killed four people.

The B.C. Coroners Service and RCMP say the remains of a second person were found at Johnsons Landing, about 70 kilometres northeast of Nelson, though they didn’t release the identity of the remains.

Four people were missing after Thursday’s slide, including 60-year-old Valentine Webber, his two daughters and a German tourist.

On Sunday, searchers found a body believed to belong to Valentine Webber near the foundation of one of the homes ruined in the slide.

The RCMP and the coroners service have now confirmed the remains of a second person have been found at the site.

Still unaccounted for are 17-year-old Rachel Webber, 22-year-old Diana Webber, and 64-year-old German national Petra Frehse.
