Police re-appeal for public's help to locate a missing woman
Mounties are re-appealing for the public’s assistance in locating a Korean woman who has now been missing for almost two weeks, and who's car was found in Golden Ears Provincial Park.
Surrey resident Kyonghee Kim, 54, was reported missing on Oct. 7, and has not been seen or heard from since Oct. 5.
Investigators have conducted thorough ground and aerial searches and completed a number of investigative steps, but have still not located Kim.
The Integrated Homicide Investigations Team believe Kim may be in the company of 59-year-old Youngku Youn – a Pitt Meadows resident and suspect in the murder of his ex-wife, Hee Sook Youn.
Surrey RCMP are asking for the public's help, as Kim's safety is a concern for both the police and her family.
Kyonghee Kim’s daughter, who wishes to remain unnamed, has now released a statement in the hopes of locating her mother:
"Hello, I am the daughter of Kyonghee Kim, speaking on behalf of my family. Today, we are appealing to anyone who may have any information about the whereabouts of my mother to please come forward and tell the police. We have not heard from her since Wednesday, Oct. 5.
We are really worried about her as she has been missing for almost two weeks now and we believe she might be in danger. She has never gone missing before and it is out of character for her to be gone for this long. She has always been a supportive, loving parent and a best friend to me and she always considered family as her number one priority.
My mother and I have especially shared a strong bond as we have been there for each other through the toughest times. She has always been my primary source of encouragement and she is the reason for who I am today. My mom has never failed to express her love and care as she would not only remind us daily how much she loves us but her actions always spoke louder than words.
Therefore, her absence feels bigger than ever as our family waits for her return. Her safe return would mean a lot to me and my family. We sincerely ask anyone who may know anything about where my mom may be to please come forward.
Thank you. God bless. Mom, if you are reading this, I’m worried about you and I want to know that you are [okay]. Please call me."
