PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - The body of a man believed to be a Canadian filmmaker who's been missing for two months has been found in the woods near Cambodia's famous Angkor temple complex.

Tith Narong, a senior officer with the Siem Reap provincial police, said Thursday that friends and acquaintances identified 58-year-old Dave Walker on the basis of his clothing. Forensic officer Pheng Pich says the body was that of a Western male, but confirmation of his identity has to await DNA tests.

He says there are no initial signs of foul play.

Walker, from Edmonton, had been living in Siem Reap, where he was a partner in a film production company. He disappeared after leaving his guesthouse room on Feb. 14, leaving behind his phone, laptop computer, passport and other belongings.
