THE Burnaby RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man that has been missing for nearly 14 years.
On July 21, 2007, Asim Chaudhry, 24 at the time, was reported missing by his family. His family last saw him on July 20, 2007, at their home in Burnaby when he told them that he was going to the library at Simon Fraser University to study for an upcoming exam.
Asim regularly took the 135 bus from his home to SFU and was last seen in the area of Production Way and Lougheed Highway on the evening of July 20, 2007.
The Burnaby RCMP have continued their search for Asim. However, there has been no new information for quite some time. They are asking members of the public to come forward should they have any information as to the whereabouts of Asim.
“There’s always a chance that someone knows something,” says Cpl. Mike Kalanj of the Burnaby RCMP. “We’re looking to provide some answers to Asim’s family and friends.”
RCMP say that in any given year, between 70,000 and 80,000 people are reported missing to police in Canada. While most are found within seven days, missing person’s cases can be extremely stressful for family and loved ones. Missing person’s cases are an operational priority for the RCMP.
If you have any information that can help investigators, contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS) quoting file number 2007-34899.
