Some of you may have heard of Shin Noh, a 64-year-old Korean man with Alzheimer's who has been missing from his home in Coquitlam since September 18th. He went out for a walk at 10am, something he did often, and didn't come back. The only confirmed sighting placed him at David Avenue and Kingston Street in NE Coquitlam at 1pm the same day.
Since then, a huge volunteer contingent has been searching the Tri-City streets for him. He is said to be in extremely good health and able to walk long distances. However, it has now been two weeks since he went missing and it is likely that Mr. Noh is no longer walking around. With that in mind, I thought it might be time to ask the people who know how to find things in the woods to keep their eyes open as they cache and perhaps take the time to wander those unofficial trails with which we are so familiar.
SAR says that most Alzheimer's patients are found within 6km of their point of disappearance. This is that area:
We've done a lot of searching in the lower Burke Mountain area and we are going to head up to Lunch With Lewis tomorrow afternoon. Search and Rescue have been checking the major areas but we figure it doesn't hurt to check the minor areas too.
