Mr. Shin Ik Noh has been missing since Wed. Sept 18th @ 10:30am
Last seen near his home at Lansdowne Dr. & Mccoomb Dr. in Coquitlam, B.C.
Noh has Alzheimer's disease with his condition worsening the past few years. Otherwise is in good physical shape and can walk long distances.
He is a retired pastor and may be seek churches and respond to gospel music.
PLEASE HELP US LOOK FOR HIM IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD. As you will be the most familiar with all the nooks and crannies in your areas, please help us and check nearby bushes, creeks, hills, and forested areas. Then help us record your search by placing a pin on the map where you looked so we can focus on areas that have not been searched. And please spread the word! If everyone in the vicinity of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody look around their neighbourhood we will have a much greater chance to find him.
We'll be in the Food Court at International Village in Chinatown on Sunday between 1pm to 4pm with flyers and cards available for pick up. We'll also have Chinese version of our flyers.
The goal for tomorrow is to target the non-English-speaking Chinese community since this community may not be aware of dad's disappearance. I know it sounds far fetched, but I wish he's been taken in by an ethnic group of people unaware of his situation perhaps thinking that he's homeless. Dad would be great company. He's easy to talk to and good at doing the dishes!
Help wanted! Please! If you're available to come out to help distribute flyers, please meet us at the Food Court at International Village. Please call (604) 996-1111 for assistance.
Dad's still out there. Not giving up. Thank you to all volunteers for your support. It means a lot to our family and you have given our family hope and strength during this difficult time.
Saturday Nov. 16th Search in Surrey: We'll be at Blenz Coffee at 13450-102nd Ave. on the SFU campus with posters and flyers available to pick up. With transit sightings, SkyTrain stations like Surrey Central is a probable station. (Facebook Event Page)
The goal is to hand out cards with my dad's photo to taxi cab drivers and at soup kitchens/shelters. Also, we want to post flyers in high foot traffic areas and businesses near Surrey Central Station to build continual awareness. Feel free to contact us at (604) 996-1111
Possible Alzheimer's-Food Connection: When dad first got diagnosed, I raided my parents fridge and posted this on my parents whiteboard. Dad didn't necessary eat these foods. Although, Korean food is high in sodium and rice is a main staple in Korean cuisine.
Interestingly, David Suzuki believes that Alzheimer's DOES NOT have a genetic factor. I always thought there was a strong genetic correlation. Further research needs to be done. Some scientists believe there's a connection between diabetes and Alzheimer's, and that diet is linked to Alzheimer's. Fast-foods and processed foods high in “nitrosamine” have a strong correlation with Alzheimer's. Food manufacturing methods have changed throughout the decades, and “nitrosamine” in food has increased almost directly proportional with Alzheimer's.
Virtual Search Card: We have an environmentally friendly version of our cards to help identify dad. Please download and try the Shin Noh Verification mobile app on your mobile phone or device at http://m.shin-noh.ca/
We'll be at Waves at Main and Cordova tomorrow between 10am to 5pm. We invite you to come down to pick up some cards and posters.
There will be many people downtown tomorrow for the Remembrance day ceremony. After the ceremony, there's an opportunity to hand out cards to people in the downtown area to continue to build awareness. Please do this in a respectful manner.
