Police have preliminarily identified a body found in a rural area north of Airdrie as the 47-year-old Saskatchewan man who went missing on Sunday.

An earlier release from the Calgary Police Service put out a call for the public’s assistance in locating Sheldon Wolf, who had been last seen at around 7 pm on Sunday, February 2 leaving the Sandman Hotel on 7th Avenue SW.

Police found a body in a rural area north of Airdrie on Tuesday, February 4, which police believe to have been Wolf. His next of kin was notified, and an autopsy is scheduled for this Friday to determine formal identification and cause of death, the release states.

Police are considering the death suspicious in nature.

“We are determined to get to the bottom of what happened to Mr. Wolf. No visitor should ever have to come to our city and be concerned about their safety,” said Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta, of the CPS Homicide Unit, in the release.

“At this time, we believe he willingly met with individuals who he had no previous relationship with prior to coming to Calgary.”

Police have stated that they will not be releasing further information abut the investigation until the autopsy is completed.
