SURREY — Police are looking for a missing Surrey woman who they suspect might be travelling with a murder suspect.
Youngku Youn, 60, of Maple Ridge is a suspect in the Oct. 5 murder of his ex-wife Hee Sook Youn, 59, in Burnaby.
The missing Surrey woman Kyonghee Kim, 54, is believed to be his girlfriend.
“Ms. Kim has not been in contact with anyone since October 5th and her family and police are concerned for her well-being,” said Staff Sergeant Jennifer Pound, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
Kim is a Korean woman, five feet three inches tall and 115 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She was reported missing on Oct. 7 and her car was found in Golden Ears Provincial Park, in Maple Ridge, the following day. Police have seized the car and despite an “exhaustive search” of the park, are still looking for the pair.
Youngku Youn is described as five feet seven inches tall and 143 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. Police ask anyone who knows where he is to call 911.
Staff Sergeant Blair McColl of the Surrey RCMP said Kim’s family is worried “as it is out of character for her to be out of touch this long.”
