What appears to be a human foot and a leg bone have been found in a running shoe floating in a downtown Vancouver waterway, police say.

Shortly before 5 p.m. PT Tuesday, police were notified that the grisly find had been made in the water next to the Plaza of Nations marina in False Creek, Const. Jana McGuinness said in a release.

The area was cordoned off and the B.C. Coroner’s Service was notified, McGuinness said.

She said there was no early indication of how the remains came to be there, and further forensic examination would be required.

Since August 2007, ampoule eleven detached human feet have been discovered on the coasts of the Salish Sea in British Columbia (Canada) and Washington (United States). The feet belong to five men, one woman, and two other persons of unknown gender, the two left feet having been matched with two of the right feet. As of July 2011, only four feet of three persons have been identified; it is not known to whom the rest of the feet belong. In addition, a hoax "foot" was planted on Vancouver Island.
