Nanaimo RCMP are seeking public assistance in their search for missing Sajed Haddadi.

The 26th year old man has not been seen since Tuesday, October 1st and his family told investigators that Haddadi had never previously gone anywhere without telling someone what his plans were.

This uncharacteristic absence has made his family and friends extremely worried for his safety and well-being.

Haddadi’s family believed he had been attending classes at Vancouver Island University but officers confirm that he was not enrolled there.

Police have also not been able to reach him by phone.

Haddadi is described as a person of colour, standing 5’6″ tall, weighing 140 lbs, and has short, dark curly hair.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
