Despite extensive efforts to locate a female senior from Richmond since she disappeared almost a week ago, her whereabouts remain unknown.
Feng Qin Zhou was last seen around 1 p.m. in the 7000 block of Firbridge Way on November 20, and her daughter reported her missing later that same day.
RCMP are reviewing video data and tips from citizens while officers are continuing to search the southern portion of Richmond.
Thus far, the search for Zhou has involved units from the Lower Mainland Tactical Troop, the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services, and the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and Integrated Air Services, with additional assistance from the Canadian Coast Guard, Surrey Search and Rescue, Richmond Fire Rescue, the City of Richmond, and Richmond Block Watch.
Zhou, who only speaks Mandarin, is described as a 75-year-old Asian woman who is 157 centimetres (five-feet, two-inches) tall with white hair and brown eyes.
She was last seen wearing a pink long-sleeve shirt, a long black hooded coat, black pants, and pink shoes.
She may appear confused or disoriented.
Zhou’s daughter, Julie Zhou, also issued a statement:
My mom has been missing almost five days since November 20, 2019 in Richmond. I appreciate it alot for RCMP’s quick reactions, close investigations, and highly professional performances, which make me feel trusting and at ease and makes me believe that there will be a promising good news for my mom in near future. I also appreciate all the volunteers from the communities in Greater Vancouver, who helped me by searching for my mom day and night during these distressed and helpless days. I never imagined that there are so many people in Greater Vancouver that have provided me so many unselfish contributions. I also appreciate everyone who has cared about my mom and all witness who provided me with valuable information about my missing mom to the RCMP.
Anyone with information as to Feng Qin Zhou’s whereabouts is asked to contact their local police.
