Search and rescue crews have been called in to help police look for clues after a man was discovered dead in a vehicle in an alley in the community of Harvest Hills.

When officers arrived, they found a body inside a vehicle and blocked off the area.

The Canine Unit was brought in but failed to turn up anything.

Investigators are considering the death suspicious and have spoken to a number of residents in the area.
