White Rock RCMP are asking the public for help locating a local resident who was last seen early Thursday.
Const. Shaileshni Molison said Hai Tao (David) Liu, 43, was reported missing that day by his wife, and the investigation so far has police believing he may be on the North Shore. That’s where police have determined his bank card was last used, Molison said.
The failure to return home or make contact is “completely out of character” for Liu and raises concerns for his well-being, Molison said.
“Our concern is for his safety. We’re not sure what’s up, we’re wanting to make sure he’s OK.”
Molison said the five-foot-10, 155-pound Liu left home around 6:30 a.m. Dec. 12 to take public transit. She did not know what his planned route was or where Liu was heading, but did say he is known to enjoy the mountains.
He was wearing a green jacket, blue jeans and yellow-and-white runners.
Investigators are liaising with North Shore police on the file, and are looking into “everything we can” for clues to Liu’s whereabouts, Molison said.
Foul play is not suspected.
Anyone who may have seen Liu or with information on his location is asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-8477), or contact Molison at 778-593-3600. Reference file #2013-5928.
