Gill’s family contacted police on the afternoon of July 15, reporting that he had not returned home as expected at 10 a.m. that day. They said that Gill normally stays close to home and does not speak English. The vehicle he was driving was located in the parking lot of a shopping complex in Burnaby.
His family is extremely concerned and police are now turning to the public for help in locating him.
Constable Ian MacDonald told The VOICE on Monday: “We think that it’s odd that the vehicle he was using ends up in Burnaby, but the family hasn’t been able to provide us any real insight as to why he would have picked Burnaby presumably to head to instead of back to the family home. They’re perplexed as to what he would have done or why he would have done that as well.”
He added: “This person almost by routine would always be on time. When he went out in that vehicle, everybody in the family expected him to be home at 10 a.m. So when we ultimately were looking for the vehicle and it was place on the police system and located in Burnaby, none of the family members could explain why that would have happened.”
Asked whether Gill was working, MacDonald said: “He mostly was shuttling family members back and forth to work and that’s the reason he was using the family vehicle.”
Gill is a South Asian male, 5’ 8” tall and weighing 155 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a red t-shirt, black shorts and black sandals.
