Thank you to our community partners, the media and the public for your assistance.
The Burnaby RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in locating 70 year-old Rick Akitaya. Rick was last seen in the vicinity of Metrotown in the 4700-block of Kingsway Ave at 10:30 a.m. on May 25, 2018.
Rick is known to go for long walks and rest in public places.
He probably thinks he’s out for a walk and not even know he’s missing! said Rick’s family members who are looking for him.
Rick is described as a 70-year-old Asian male, 5’4″ tall, 155 lbs with brown eyes and short white hair. He was last seen wearing a dark green fleece sweater over a collared white golf shirt, black Nike ball cap, brown-framed glasses, and blue jeans. Rick may appear to be confused and have some trouble with recall but should be responsive to any queries by the public.
The Burnaby RCMP is concerned for Rick’s well-being and is urging anyone who may have seen Rick or know of his whereabouts to call the Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. If they wish to remain to anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or text “BCTIP” to 274637 with information.
