“It’s very important that anybody who was in this area on January 8, just after lunch, and saw Ms. Liang’s [car], it’s a small electric vehicle, it’s quite unique, who saw anybody operating that vehicle or in the area, getting out, walking around the area, give us a call,” VPD Const. Jason Doucette said.

“It’s very important.”

“The RCMP are equipped with specialized training and equipment to help locate and recover evidence. Police will likely be on location throughout the weekend. There is no additional information to share at this time,” Doucette said in an email.

In the course of the investigation, police say they have searched Liang’s home, and took a man into custody for questioning who has since been released.
