Comox Valley RCMP are reaching out to the public to try and determine the origin of human placenta discovered at a beach.

On October 2, a woman called Comox Valley RCMP stating she had discovered a placenta along the beach at Goose Spit.

She was unsure if the placenta belonged to a human or not, and so she called RCMP. Police say an initial investigation revealed that it does, in fact, belong to a human being.

“It is with an abundance of caution that we are reaching out to the public,” said Cst. Monika
Terragni in a statement.

“This placenta may be associated to a mother and/or baby who require medical assistance. We want to ensure they’re alright and have access to any medical care required.”
