The disappearance of a Burnaby woman has been turned over to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) by RCMP.

Yating (Lancy) Hu went missing on July 15 and an investigation by Burnaby RCMP's serious crime unit determined there was reason to suspect foul play was involved.

Hu, 27, was last seen that day between 8 and 9 p.m. by her husband, who dropped her off at her apartment near the Metropolis at Metrotown mall. He reported her missing on July 18 when he couldn't contact her to return their two small children after the weekend.

Hu is five-foot-seven, 119 pounds with shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes. She wears glasses and speaks English and Mandarin.

Anyone with information on her disappearance is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448.
