VANCOUVER Police on Thursday released an additional photo and renewed an appeal for the public’s help in finding a missing 36-year-old Irshaad Ikbal who was last seen on April 29 at around 2 a.m. near the Plaza of Nations on Pacific Boulevard.

He became separated from friends and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

“Each day that passes without finding Irshaad increases our concern for his well-being,” said Constable Tania Visintin. “It is extremely troubling and is out of character for Irshaad to have gone so long without speaking to his family, friends and co-workers.”

Irshaad is South Asian, 5’8” and 155 pounds, with a medium build. He has short black hair, hazel eyes, and a black beard. He was wearing a white button-down shirt with a pink and blue pattern, light blue and ripped denim jeans, and white high-top Converse shoes.

“An extensive investigation into Irshaad’s disappearance began as soon as VPD were called,” said Visintin. “This includes a video review from the area Irshaad was last seen, a review of his bank records and his social media accounts, several interviews with those that were with him, and a search of False Creek waters.”

If you have any information that may assist in locating Irshaad Ikbal, you are requested to call the Vancouver Police Missing Person Unit at 604-717-2530 or email
