The trails around Mike Lake in Golden Ears Park were closed to the public all weekend while a major police operation was underway.
The abandoned vehicle of missing Surrey woman Kyonghee Kim was discovered in Golden Ears Park Saturday night and she was last seen driving north over the Golden Ears Bridge on Tuesday. Her family says it is completely out of character for her to disappear.
Police sources told Global News on Monday the search for the 54-year-old Kim may be connected to the hunt for a missing murder suspect, Youngku Youn.
“Our priority is to locate this individual and apprehend him,” IHIT Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound said.
Youn is wanted in connection with the death of his ex-wife Hee Sook Youn. Her body was discovered inside her Burnaby business on Oct. 5.
The couple divorced four years ago. Youn was charged with assault and had a court order to stay away from his ex-wife. Friends say the victim never spoke of her troubles.
The search was completed and and the park was re-opened Monday afternoon.
Police said Youn and Kim are both still considered missing persons and anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact IHIT or Surrey police.
