A 38-year-old man has gone missing in New West, and the New Westminster Police Department (NWPD) is asking residents and businesses to stay on the lookout.

Missing since August 14, at approximately 2 am in the Queensborough area of New West, Eric Cardeno was last seen at his residence.

Police say Cardeno was wearing a dark tank top and black baseball shorts and is considered high risk.

Cardeno is considered high risk as an individual who might deal with mental or physical health issues, not that he poses a risk to the public.

Police describe Cardeno as a Filipino male who stands 5’10”, with a medium build, shaved head, and a tattoo down the left side of his chest extending onto his arm and top of his hand.
