    On Monday May 8, 2017, the Burnaby RCMP received a report of a missing family of three that had been last seen at approximately 3 pm on May 7, 2017, in Burnaby. Family members reported to Burnaby RCMP that Ming Dong Xu, his wife, 36-year-old Yu Ling Zhang and their 4-year-old son, Garrick had not returned home the evening of May 7 as expected.

    The investigation led the police to the area of Mitchell Island where they concentrated their search efforts. Evidence at the scene suggested that a vehicle may have entered the water and the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team was called in to assist with a search of that area.

    Burnaby RCMP can confirm that a submerged vehicle was pulled from the water and that there was one occupant pronounced deceased at the scene. Another occupant was located in close proximity to the vehicle and a third occupant has yet to be located. The next of kin have since been notified.

    Although it is early, foul play is not suspected, however the investigation is ongoing to determine what led to this tragedy. The BC Coroners Service is involved in this investigation.

    No further information is available at this time.

    The Burnaby RCMP is urging anyone who has information about this incident to please contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

    Mounties in Burnaby and family and friends are worried following the disappearance of three people, including a four-year-old child.

    Police say 38-year-old Ming Dong Xu, his wife, 36-year-old Yu Ling Zhang and their son, Garrick Xu were reported missing by family members to the RCMP today. They were last seen yesterday afternoon.

    RCMP Corporal Daniela Panesar says family reported them missing shortly before 4 a.m. today.

    “It’s unusual for this family to not to contact family.”

    Police aren’t ruling out foul play.

    “It’s early in the investigation. Investigators are probably looking at all possibilities,” Panesar says. “There’s little information, which is why we’re making an appeal to the public to contact the Burnaby RCMP. We have started receiving tips shortly after the news release went out.”

    The family was last seen in a 2006 Honda Accord that is similar to the one seen below.
