Vancouver Police are asking for the public’s help to find a missing 44 year old Vancouver man.

Barry Carl Hinchcliffe was last seen at about 7 p.m. on September 20th leaving his home in the 900 block Expo Boulevard in Vancouver. When Barry left his home he was driving a grey 2009 Toyota Tacoma bearing B.C. plate BH8539. It is believed that he may have been driving to the Mission area.

Hinchcliffe is a white, 5’7”, 170 lbs., with short sandy-coloured hair, and brown eyes. It is not known what he was last wearing.

The extended absence is uncharacteristic, as Barry has regular contact with family members.

Anyone seeing Barry Hinchcliffe or his vehicle is asked to contact their local police.

Body found two weeks ago on Abbotsford riverfront is that of missing Vancouver man



By Jennifer Saltman, The Province February 28, 2014

Human remains found by the Fraser River in Abbotsford earlier this month have been identified as those of a Vancouver man who has been missing more than two years.

Barry Carl Hinchcliffe, 44, was last seen alive when he left his home in the 900-block Expo Boulevard around 7 p.m. on Sept. 20, 2011. He was heading to a rural property he owned in the 12900-block Sylvester Road in Mission.

Hinchcliffe’s family reported him missing a week later.

Police found Hinchcliffe’s grey 2009 Toyota Tacoma pickup at the Mission property, but there was no sign of Hinchcliffe. Homicide investigators took over the file on Oct. 1, 2011. A public appeal was made two months later.

On Feb. 16, a person walking along the Fraser River off Walters Street in north Abbotsford found human remains at the water’s edge, tangled in debris. Homicide investigators announced Friday that the remains had been identified as Hinchcliffe.

Although cause of death has not been released, police say they are investigating Hinchcliffe’s death as a homicide.

“We are fortunate to provide to a grieving family some closure with the remains of Barry being found, but our ultimate goal is to solve this homicide,” said Integrated Homicide Investigation Team spokesman Sgt. Adam MacIntosh.

Remains identified as missing Vancouver man
 
When Barry Carl Hinchcliffe vanished on Sept. 20, 2011, he had hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of assets and no known job.
 
BY VANCOUVER SUN MARCH 1, 2014

When Barry Carl Hinchcliffe vanished on Sept. 20, 2011, he had hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of assets and no known job.

Police suspect the 44-year-old Vancouver man was involved in the drug trade, according to court documents obtained by The Vancouver Sun.

Now the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is probing his murder.

IHIT confirmed Friday that it was Hinchcliffe's remains found on the banks of the Fraser River in Abbotsford Feb. 16.

"Cause of death and other information relating to the remains are not being released at this time," IHIT Sgt. Adam MacIntosh said.

"We are fortunate to provide to a grieving family some closure with the remains of Barry being found but our ultimate goal is to solve this homicide."

He said investigators suspect Hinchcliffe was killed the day he went missing or soon afterwards.

Hinchcliffe texted his young daughter MacKenzie on Vancouver Island around dinnertime on Sept. 20, according to an affidavit filed in B.C. Supreme Court. "His last text message to her said he would call her in an hour or so. He never did," according to the affidavit by the girl's mother, Kim Sigurdson.

Hinchcliffe was supposed to head over to Duncan for a birthday party the following weekend, but never made it.

"I am sure if Barry was alive, he would have contacted MacKenzie or me," Sigurdson said.

A woman who lived with him at his $1,500-a-month rental apartment on Expo Boulevard told police she saw him drive away that evening in his grey 2009 Toyota Tacoma.

He was en route to an acreage he owned at 14708 Sylvester Road in Mission, worth $510,000. Police later searched the property and found the vehicle, but no sign of Hinchcliffe. While Vancouver Police released the first missing person bulletin, IHIT had taken over the investigation by Oct. 1, 2011.

IHIT searched the Mission property, which included a large Quonset-like building, several small sheds and a derelict mobile home, in 2011.

At the time, Sgt. Jennifer Pound said the mobile home was "pretty beaten up" and that it appeared nobody had been living there. She said police wouldn't be commenting on other evidence found at the scene.

By February 2012, the B.C. government's public guardian had petitioned B.C. Supreme Court to control Hinchcliffe's estate to provide for his daughter.

The petition said Hinchcliffe's "occupation is unknown. The police suspect that he has been involved in the drug trade."

Affidavits filed in support of the petition said Hinchcliffe had about $225,000 invested, more than $3,000 cash in his account and the Mission property.

They noted there had been no activity on any of his accounts after Sept. 20, 2011.

MacIntosh said other families with missing loved ones began calling as soon as the news broke. "That's a difficult thing," he said. "We were glad to be able to identify him fairly quickly."

Another death of a young man involved in the drug trade.  They seem to have split minds about their way of earning a living.  They love their family, etc, never thinking that what they do, may take them away forever from their love ones?

Of course, they think that they are taking all precautions, and they are invincible,

Some people will say, that is another dealer off the street.  True = but there are many more that will fill in.

So very very sad.
