COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) — Crews have resumed their search for a missing Coquitlam man who hasn’t been seen after going on a hike nearly a week ago.

52-year-old Ali Naderi was last seen hiking on a trail in the Eagle Mountain area last Sunday.

Search crews had taken a two-day break in their efforts to rest, but they are back out on the trail.

A camera captured an image of Naderi on the trail showing him wearing a light jacket, shorts and hiking boots.

Earlier in the week, Cpl. Michael McLaughlin with the Coquitlam RCMP mentioned Naderi was missing some important equipment, including a communication device.

Searchers said he is known to hike alone in that area almost daily. However, a concerned citizen called police after observing that Naderi’s vehicle had been parked many hours longer than usual.

Naderi is a Persian man with brown eyes and salt and pepper hair. He is 5’10” tall and weighs about 185 pounds.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550.

Search and rescue say they will be forwarding an update once again Sunday.
