A body found in a warehouse in Hayward last summer has been identified as that of a missing San Francisco Uber driver who was last seen by his family in May.
The body, found by warehouse workers on June 24, 2017, could not immediately be identified due to its condition and has now been confirmed to be that of Piseth Chhay through DNA analysis.
San Francisco police are investigating Chhay’s death as a homicide and have identified Bob Tang, also known as Bob Tov, as a suspect.
Tang and Chhay are family acquaintances, and Tang is thought to be the last person who saw Chhay, who was last seen alive on May 14.
Tang himself was last seen on May 22 by his wife, when he left to respond to an alarm call at a home in Antioch, and was reported missing on May 24.
His car was later found at San Francisco International Airport and police now believe he has fled the United States for Cambodia.
Investigators are working with other law enforcement agencies to locate him and bring him back to the country.
Tang was described last year as an Asian male, around 5 feet 4 inches and 130 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He was 48 years old at the time of his disappearance.
Anyone with information on this case or on Tang’s whereabouts is asked to call police at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411, starting the text message with “SFPD.” Tips can be made anonymously.
