A Maple Ridge man who went missing over a week ago has been found dead at a residence in the city.
Lawrence Nadessan, 44, went missing on Saturday, Oct. 24, and was last seen leaving his apartment at 11:30 p.m.
Police located his body on Friday, Oct. 30.
“While foul play in Mr. Nadessan’s death is not suspected at this time, the circumstances following his death require further investigation by police” said a police press release. “Mr. Nadessan’s family had not seen or heard from him for several days which is considered to be out of character for him.”

He was recorded leaving his apartment near the west end of the Haney Bypass, and was seen in the downtown core of Maple Ridge at around midnight.
