As the search continues for a missing man in West Vancouver, some of his clothing has been found near the waterline, police say.
Fukuoshima “Fuku” Vikilani, 30, was last seen at Imperial Avenue and Marine Drive in West Vancouver on Saturday, Nov. 25, according to the local police department.
Ten days after Vikilani went missing, the search is still active, said Sgt. Mark McLean. But North Shore Rescue’s efforts have concluded, he said, after an “extensive” land search in the Horseshoe Bay, Whytecliff Park and Copper Cove areas.
The latest development in the search is the recovery of the clothing that Vikilani was believed to have been wearing at the time of his disappearance.
“The clothing was found in a pile close to the shoreline in the area of Bachelor Bay,” McLean said. “[Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue] assisted with an extensive water search and VPD’s marine unit are still assisting us with searches of the shoreline in that area.”
“We are concerned he may have entered the ocean,” McLean added.
Investigators are in constant contact with the family, he said.
Anyone with information that could aid in Vikilani’s search is encouraged to call West Vancouver police at 604-925-7300.
