Police say video footage confirms White Rock's Hai Tao (David) Liu was in North Vancouver on Dec. 12

New clue in search for missing White Rock man

Surveillance video shows Hai Tao (David) Liu in a North Vancouver fast-food restaurant on Dec. 12.

Police searching for a missing White Rock man now know he at least made it to North Vancouver.

Const. Shaileshni Molison said Tuesday that video footage shows Hai Tao (David) Liu at a fast-food restaurant near Lonsdale Quay around 12:30 p.m. Dec. 12 – the day he was reported missing.

The 43-year-old father of two left his White Rock home around 6:30 a.m. to take public transit. His wife reported him missing after he failed to return.

Investigation so far has determined Liu’s bank card was last used on that same day. There has been no activity on his cellphone, which Liu apparently had with him when he left home.

It’s believed he may be somewhere near the mountains.

“We’re just tracing steps,” Molison said. “We’re all hopeful. We just want him to be home safe to his kids.”

Liu is five-foot-10, 155 pounds, with short black hair. He was last seen wearing black-framed glasses, a green jacket, blue jeans and yellow-and-white runners.

North Vancouver police are helping in the search. Anyone with information on Liu’s whereabouts is asked to call 911,  White Rock RCMP (778-593-3600) or Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-2477).
