Calgary Police have found missing Langley-based truck driver John Oswell dead of natural causes.

The Alberta city police service did not release details, only saying that the “circumstances were not suspicious.”

The discovery was reportedly made Sunday morning after police were called to investigate an unattended Freightliner parked in a lot in the 2300 block of 50 Ave. SE.

Oswell, a truck driver, went missing after he left Langley at approximately 8:30 a.m. on April 17 for Airdrie, Alberta driving a tractor-trailer truck.

A public appeal for help locating Oswell was issued by Langley RCMP after he failed to arrive at his destination.
