Delta Police are asking for the public's assistance to help track down an elderly Tsawwassen man who has been missing for more than a week.

Dong Lee, 75, was last seen at his home in the 1200-block of Pacific Drive on Wednesday, Dec. 5, between 9 p.m. and midnight.

The next morning, Lee and his wife's car, a green 2007 Volkswagen Beetle bearing the B.C. license plate 680LGA, were both missing.

Lee's family became worried and went out looking for him for several hours, before contacting police to report him missing.

Police initially requested the public's assistance in locating Lee on Dec. 6, but the search has so far proved fruitless.

Lee was last seen wearing his pajamas. He is described as an Asian male, five-foot-six, weighing 133 pounds, with black hair. Delta Police are concerned for Lee's well being, given his medical history of diabetes and heart trouble.

Police spokesperson Ciaran Feenan said there's nothing to suggest Lee was abducted, and appears to have left on his own accord.

However, police have launched a criminal investigation into Lee's disappearance.

"We are continuing to investigate every lead that comes in," Feenan said.

Anyone who has seen Lee or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
