Chilliwack RCMP are asking the public to help locate a 67-year-old Asian man who went missing more than two weeks ago.

Charles Jiu Ngi Kon was last seen on Jan. 26 buying a Greyhound bus ticket to Abbotsford at about 10 a.m.

“He did not purchase any other tickets to go to another destination from Abbotsford,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

But she said Kon has no known friends or family in Abbotsford, and does not have a cellphone or a vehicle.

He has been to Vancouver’s Chinatown on occasion, Hollingsworth said, but police do not have any information that he has been there since his disappearance.

“The RCMP is extremely concerned for his safety,” she said.

Kon is described as 5’10” tall, weighing about 133 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Kon’s whereabouts is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS “as soon as possible,” Hollingsworth said.
