On Saturday morning, San Francisco Police Department investigators and canine teams from the Alameda County Sheriff’s office responded to a Hayward warehouse after workers there discovered human remains.
Officials haven’t identified the deceased person, but the warehouse is connected to Bob Tang, 48, a person of interest in the disappearance of Uber driver Piseth Chhay, 47, of San Francisco. ABC7 reports that the Medical Examiner’s office has contacted Chhay’s family to request a DNA sample for comparison.
Chhay has been missing since May 14; his stripped car was discovered on May 20 on Davidson Avenue in the Bayview, but his work is not believed to be related to his disappearance.
Family and friends have been searching for Chhay since May, but no leads have surfaced. According to a police statement, Tang and Chhay are family acquaintances.
SFPD investigators are working with federal law enforcement to locate Tang, who is believed to have fled to Cambodia. A car belonging to Tang—also known as Bob Toy—was discovered in a parking lot at SFO on May 25. Tang is described as an Asian male, about 5'4" and 130 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.
Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call their anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444 or text their tip to TIP411, starting the message with “SFPD.”
