New Westminster Police search for missing man wanted on outstanding warrants

New Westminster Police are asking for help finding a missing man who is also wanted for a number of alleged offences.

Alvin Hedlund was last seen Nov. 18, 2018, but was recently reported missing when his family didn’t get any replies to their messages sent through social media. The 41-year-old has no fixed address, and investigators think he could be staying in shelters in the Metro Vancouver area or with friends in Mission.

Hedlund is believed to be evading police because of several outstanding warrants issued for his arrest. He is wanted for alleged break-and-enter, possession of a break-in instrument, mischief and several counts of theft.

“We would like to ensure Mr. Hedlund’s well-being given his family’s concern, but we also have the outstanding warrants that need to be dealt with,” New Westminster Police Sgt. Jeff Scott said in the release.

Hedlund is described as Caucasian with short, blonde hair and blue eyes. He stands six feet, five inches tall.

Anyone with information on Hedlund’s whereabouts is asked to call New Westminster Police at 604-525-5411, with file number 2018-23856.
