The 64-year-old man’s body was found in the 6800 block of Miller Road.

Police say the incident is not considered suspicious.

Pushparaj was last seen walking near Richmond Hospital on the evening of Monday, May 9, and later near Lansdowne Station close to 10 p.m.

The police put out an appeal to the public about information on his whereabouts two days later as his family was growing concerned about his well-being.

The Richmond RCMP thanked the public and media for assistance in searching for Pushparaj.
