  Stolen dragon sculpture found in Nanaimo, B.C. NANAIMO, B.C. - A large aluminum dragon sculpture that went missing from its perch in a Nanaimo, B.C., park has been found. Artist Heather Wall says in an email the dragon turned up in a library parking lot wrapped in brightly-coloured blankets on Friday afternoon. Rock Dragon 2.0 was installed atop a rock and steel sphere mounted on a two-metre pole in the waterfront park in early June and Wall said it would have required a co-ordinated effort to get it down.She estimated the value at between $12,000 and $15,000 and said it had been leased by the City of Nanaimo for one year.Nanaimo RCMP spokesoman Const. Gary O'Brien says the sculpture did not appear to be damaged.

A Good Samaritan found the body about two and a half miles southeast of Avery Point around 12:19 p.m., according to officials.

The body of a 56-year-old kayaker who went missing near Sooke, B.C. on June 18 has been discovered at the Clallam County shoreline in Washington State.

The Clallam County coroner has identified the kayaker as Lin "Michael" Wang. His body was found July 3.

Wang had set out for a paddle in Beecher Bay on the morning of June 18. His vehicle was found at Beecher Bay in East Sooke on June 19, after he had been reported overdue.

A full-scale search was launched covering a 1,000-square kilometre area of the Juan de Fuca Strait, from Sooke to Victoria.

A red kayak, similar to the one Wang was paddling, was found relatively quickly, but there was no sign of him until last week.
