It’s been one year since Bernard Grempel disappeared.

Surrey RCMP are again appealing to the public in the hopes even the smallest bit of information could assist in locating him.

Today (May 14, 2022) marks one year since the last time Grempel was seen.

Leading up to his disappearance investigators have confirmed that Bernard entered the Surrey Central Skytrain station at 10:31 p.m., took the skytrain, and arrived at the 22nd Street station located in New Westminster at 10:53 p.m. Investigators believe that Bernard boarded the 340 bus at 10:59 p.m., which travels to the Scottsdale exchange in North Delta. Despite extensive video canvassing, police were not able to confirm where Bernard disembarked the bus.

Grempel was last seen on video wearing red sweat pants, a white hoody, blue medical mask, and black/white Nike runners. He is described as a 29-year-old man, 6’0 tall, with a slim build, curly brown hair and brown eyes.

“Thank you to the public for all the tips that we have received over the past year and continue to receive,” says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Cpl. Vanessa Munn. “Our investigators have followed up on all tips and will continue to do so until Bernard is found. As our investigation continues, we are encouraging anyone with any information who has not yet spoken with investigators to contact Surrey RCMP.”

Anyone with information that could assist police in locating Bernard Grempel is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or
