Police in Surrey are continuing a search for a 14-year-old boy that began Monday evening.
Arnav Naphar was last seen at about 6 p.m. Monday, when he and his family were at Hyland Creek Park in Newton.
Surrey RCMP say Naphar went off alone on a bike ride around the park, which was normal, but then he failed to return, which is highly unusual.
A Surrey Search and Rescue team combed the trails in the area last night, and RCMP say a police helicopter searched from the air.
Naphar is described as South Asian, five feet nine inches tall, about 110 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue and white jacket, black track pants with a white stripe and no helmet. His bicycle is described as a grey men’s bike.
The Surrey RCMP Missing Persons Unit has taken over the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS to remain anonymous.
