Burnaby RCMP activated Coquitlam SAR this afternoon to follow up on a missing person who could possibly be in the Coquitlam area.
Richard Lin, 19, was last seen at his home in south Burnaby on September 6th, 2014. Initial evidence led the police to believe that he might be travelling to Squamish.
A possible sighting near Buntzen Lake on September 7th, 2014 between noon and 1 PM resulted in Coquitlam SAR members searching the Halvor Lunden trail from the Polytrichum lookout to El Paso junction today.
