Missing Woman Disappears Under Suspicious Circumstances

Update:  April 11, 2018  |   February 21, 2018

Vancouver Police believe a woman reported missing two weeks ago disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Investigators are asking for the public’s help in tracing her activities prior to going missing.

Thirty-seven-year-old Su Yi Liang of Vancouver was reported missing to police on Wednesday, January 10th, by her father after she failed to pick-up her children at school. Officers were not able to locate Ms. Liang, so the investigation was turned over the VPD’s Major Crime Section.

Based on the information detectives uncovered over the past two weeks, officers have executed a search warrant at Ms. Liang’s East Vancouver home and taken a man into custody for questioning. He has since been released from custody and the investigation continues.

Ms. Liang is Asian, 5’3″ tall, 120 lbs., with black shoulder-length hair, and she wears glasses.

Officers located Ms. Liang’s grey electric 2014 BMW i3. It was found at Cassiar and Charles Street near the Rupert Park Pitch & Putt on January 11th. Investigators would like to speak with anyone who may have information about who may have been driving the vehicle before it was parked there.

“Although we are treating this file as a missing person’s investigation and hoping for the best, we have collected evidence that leads us to believe that we won’t find Ms. Liang alive,” says VPD’s Constable Jason Doucette. “We are asking anyone who may have had contact with her, or who has information about her activities leading up to January 10th, to contact our detectives.”

Investigators do not believe the public are at risk.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Ms. Liang, and her activities leading up to January 10th, as well as anyone who may have seen someone driving her BMW i3 until January 11th, is asked to contact the VPD’s Major Crime Section at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
