  • BC student Asim Chaudhry who left home 14 years ago, saying he was heading to library, still missing

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.

The Burnaby RCMP is 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-years of age 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 Hwy on this same evening.

The Burnaby RCMP have continued their search for Asim, however, there has been no new information for quite some time. We 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 Corporal Mike Kalanj of the Burnaby RCMP. We’re looking to provide some answers to Asim’s family and friends.

If you have any information that can help investigators, please 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.
