An 86-year-old man who went missing Thursday afternoon has been found safe and sound.

On Jan. 26, Mohammad Forghaniashrafi came to Richmond with his wife from North Vancouver for the day.  At around 1:30 pm, he decided to take a transit bus to an area church on Blundell Road and has neither been seen nor heard from since.

But on Friday morning, he returned to his North Vancouver home.

Forghaniashrafi suffers from a medical condition requiring him to take medication twice per day.  Failing to do so can result in his becoming confused, losing his sense of direction and may lead to his collapsing.

He is described as an 5’2” tall, 115 pounds with short white /grey hair and a moustache. He was wearing a black suit and pants, beige ball cap with the letters “GH” on it and carrying a cane. He does not speak English. He is of Persian ancestry and speaks Farsi.

Anyone with any information regarding Forghaniashrafi’s wherabouts is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212.
