Banks said the bodies were discovered Tuesday evening, hours after the trio slipped and fell into the pool.

Banks says the families of those missing are being contacted and the RCMP will not be releasing their names at this time.

Corporal Sascha Banks of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the victims were aged in their 20s and 30s.

On Tuesday, June 3, according to eyewitness testimony given rescue personnel and CBC, it appears Scraper fell in a pool of water above the third and most remote falls in the series of cascades at Shannon Falls.

They end up by the handsome granite that's been carved by the water over hundreds of years but the buildup of lichen makes the area slick, Willcox says, adding dogs and people have slipped into the water but have been helped out.

"Getting the helicopter in to actually do an extraction out of there has its challenges", he said.

Authorities on Wednesday launched a hazardous operation to recover the bodies. "Fortunately in the past they have been able to be rescued", John Willcox of Squamish Search and Rescue said.

"The RCMP and Squamish SAR have transitioned to a recovery of the bodies from the pool but the terrain is extremely hard, very risky, and the water flow will be heavy with the warm temperatures today, increasing the risk to those in the recovery effort", said Banks in a statement shared Wednesday.

"Unless you have the knowledge of that area, the expertise and the right equipment you should not be up there", Banks said.

Searchers used an underwater camera to scour the pool on Tuesday in hopes of determining its depth as they searched for the hikers.

The three missing were apart of a larger group of friends swimming in one of the pools at the top of the falls.

Trails leading to the pool system at the top of Shannon Falls will be closed for the remainder of the search.

Crews from Squamish Search and Rescue, North Shore Rescue, Lions Bay Rescue, BC Ambulance, Squamish Fire, TEAAM, BC Parks, and Squamish RCMP have been involved in the search.
