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.
