Burnaby RCMP are seeking a mom who's been missing for over a week.

Yanting (Lancy) Hu, 27, was last seen on July 15, between 8 and 9 p.m. by her husband, when he dropped her off at her apartment near Metrotown mall. She has not been seen since.

The couple is separated and Hu’s husband became worried when she missed several appointments they had together and he couldn’t contact her to return their two small children after the weekend.

Hu does not have a vehicle and uses public transportation. Hu is described as being  Asian, 170 cm (5-foot-7), 54 kg (119 lbs), with shoulder length black hair and brown eyes. She wears glasses and speaks English and Mandarin.

The case is a high priority and is being actively investigated by the Burnaby RCMP serious crime unit.

Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk said police are seeking the public's help not only if they've spotted Hu but also if they know her and her patterns, such where she tends to spend time.

"There's completely no history of this type of behaviour," Gresiuk said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Burnaby RCMP immediately at 604-294-7922.
