A Toronto man is wanted on two counts of first-degree murder after a Markham couple went missing earlier this month.
Kwok Tran, 37, and Christy Nguyen, 25, went missing on Saturday, September 18, around 5:30 p.m., after visiting a retail/warehouse building at 111 Zenway Bowl in Vaughan, York Regional Police say Is.
York Region Police now say the couple’s disappearance is the result of a targeted attack.
“Investigators are working actively to recover the bodies,” York Regional Police said in a prepared statement on Tuesday.
The York Regional Police homicide unit has issued a Canada-wide warrant for 35-year-old Phuong Tan (Mike) Nguyen, who has been described as “armed and dangerous”.
Nguyen is five foot nine and 180 lbs.
Investigators released photos of a large white, industrial truck they say is linked to the crime, but did not say how it was connected.
