An urn located in South Surrey's Redwood Park in early March has been reunited with its rightful owner.

Police confirmed Wednesday that the brother of the man whose ashes had been in the urn contacted the detachment Tuesday following media attention to the mystery.

Surrey RCMP appealed Friday for help identifying the owner, after investigative efforts failed to locate anyone associated to the urn.

It remains unclear exactly why the urn was left at the park.
