Coquitlam SAR looking for missing Burnaby woman

BURNABY (NEWS1130) – RCMP have a possible lead on the whereabouts of a senior who went missing January 16th.

Coquitlam Search and Rescue have been asked to investigate a sighting of someone matching the description of 66-year-old Gui Feng Tong on Burnaby Mountain near Horizon’s Restaurant.

“We found it was worth running the trails to see if she was still in the area. Campus security is also looking in the university. There’s a possibility that she may have been sheltering there and having food at the university,” explains Michael Coyle with Coquitlam SAR.

Coyle says they will have 20 volunteers out looking for Tong. “We’re just going to run the trails until we find evidence that leads us in some direction. I expect we will be done around 2 a.m.”

Tong only speaks Mandarin.

If you have any information on her whereabouts, contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
