Lawrence Nadessan, 44, was last seen on Oct. 24 at 11:30 p.m. in Maple Ridge.

The family of a Maple Ridge man who has been missing since late Saturday night is hoping somebody saw him, and can shed some light on his disappearance.

Lawrence Nadessan, 44, was last seen on Oct. 24 at 11:30 p.m. in the area of Lougheed Highway and the Haney Bypass, which is the neighbourhood near his home. Security cameras saw photos of him leaving home, and he has not been seen since. He was wearing a light hoodie on a cold evening.

His family is extremely worried, and his sister Charlene Nadessan said the disappearance is extremely out of character. He has not answered his phone, and it has not been located.

She described her brother as a non-drinker and non-drug user, who regularly went to the gym and went for runs. He lives with his mother and nephew in Maple Ridge.

Lawrence Nadessan is described as a South Asian man with a shaved head. Although the photo shows him with facial hair, he was clean shaven. He is 5’10” tall and 170 lbs., and has tattoos on both arms. He was wearing a dark grey hooding and light grey jogging pants, and a black baseball cap with white writing.
