A man reported missing from Abbotsford last week still has not been located and police continue to appeal for information.

Baljinder Sahota, 41, left his family home around noon on Thursday and has not been in contact with family or friends since.

He did not bring identification, money or belongings with him, according to police.

His 1994 black Honda Civic was found the following afternoon in a parking lot at Harbour Avenue and Bridge Street in Mission not far from the Fraser River.

Police feared that Sahota might have jumped in the river, resulting in his search being expanded to the water.

Const. Ian MacDonald said authorities in other jurisdictions have been notified of Sahota's disappearance.

"There are still people actively looking for him on land," he said.

MacDonald said Sahota has no history of drugs, gangs or other criminal activity.

Sahota is 5' 9" and weighs about 160 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a white Puma jacket with black track pants and blue runners.

Police are asking that anyone with information, including possible sightings of Sahota or his vehicle (licence plate 344MFR) anytime after noon on July 11, to immediately contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).
