Police say Justin has now been found....

The Vancouver Police are asking for the public's assistance in locating a missing 25 year old Vancouver man who was last seen leaving his home in the 3000 block East Kent Avenue North at about 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 30th.

Justin Sit is an Asian male, 25 years old, 5'7" tall and 160 lbs, and has short black hair. Justin was last seen wearing a green hoodie, a white t-shirt, dark coloured jeans, and black Nike runners.

He suffers from a schizoaffective disorder and may appear confused, disoriented, or withdrawn. Justin is scared of other people, is very uncomfortable out in public, and is known to hide. These feelings are exacerbated when he does not take his medication. He has a poor sense of direction and a limited ability to use public transit.

It is not believed that Justin has any money and it is unknown where he might be going. An area search by police around his home as well as checks of public transit, community centres, and hospitals have failed to turn up any sign of Justin.

The Vancouver Police are asking that anyone who has seen Justin Sit or has information on his whereabouts to call 9-1-1 immediately.
