NWPD Seek Public Assistance to Locate Vehicle

*Update* The Toyota Corolla has been located. Thanks to everyone who helped us search for it.

New Westminster – The New Westminster Police Department is seeking public assistance to locate a blue four-door 1998 Toyota Corolla, with BC License plate 985MSB, belonging to a recently deceased 57 year old New Westminster resident.

Investigators are in the early stages to ensure that the deceased individual’s items are all accounted for, but his vehicle is currently outstanding. The vehicle is usually parked in the rear lot of the owner’s building in the 500 block of 6th Avenue; however, it is currently missing and it is unclear if it has been taken without consent.

“At this point the cause of death is unknown, but there are no obvious signs of foul play,” stated Sergeant Jeff Scott. “We would like to ensure that all of his property is secure and turned over to his family.”

Anyone who sees this vehicle is asked to call the New Westminster Police Department at 604-525-5411 or 911 if the vehicle is being driven.
