    The Clark County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday increased its reward offer for information leading to a missing Vancouver man. Khoi Vu, who is deaf and developmentally disabled, vanished on April 7th.

    All efforts to find the 25-year-old man have come up empty. The Sheriff’s office hoped the new $5,000 reward offer would lead to new clues about Vu.

    His FBI page

    AMW page

    News article from four days after his disappearance:

    http://www.kgw.com/news-local/stories/kgw_040907_news_missing_man.6161f64.html

    Khoi Vu's family reported him missing Saturday and then on Sunday, an unidentified woman called 9-1-1 after seeing a story about Vu on television. She told police Vu joined her sons on the basketball court at Ellsworth Elementary School around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.


    Vu's family said they were sure the tip was not a hoax, because of the details the woman shared about Vu and his love for basketball. The woman also said the man was very thirsty and drank a water bottle she gave him in a matter of seconds.

    He doesn't seem to be listed at the NCMA, which seems a bit strange.

    Moved to discussion board from LTWH, case started by Be Adequite!

    Missing/cold case- WA state- Khoi Dang Vu

    Khoi Dang Vu- Vancouver, WA
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/v/vu_khoi.html
    Another hometown missing person- this one has always frustrated me. A mentally disabled, deaf 25 year old male- who COULD communicate with ASL, writing, and gestures- simply vanishes from the home he shared with parents and in laws. Someone knows what happened to him...

    Khoi is still missing after more than 3 years. :(


    Khoi's FBI poster: http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/kidnap/vu_k.htm

    Khoi Vu was last seen by his family sometime between the hours of midnight and 1 a.m. on the morning of April 7, 2007, at the home which he shares with his family in Clark County, Washington. They noticed he was missing around 8 a.m. on April 7, 2007. Vu apparently left the house without his favorite jacket and his bicycle, which is his primary mode of transportation. He has never disappeared at night before, and has never left the house alone for more than an hour or two at a time.


    And Khoi on AMW: http://www.amw.com/missing_persons/brief.cfm?id=44533

    It's been more than one year since Khoi Vu mysteriously disappeared from his family's home in Clark County, Wash. Khoi supposedly headed to bed after he watched TV with his mom on April 7, 2007, but family members were in disbelief when they discovered that the developmentally disabled 25-year-old was missing the next morning. The FBI, local law enforcement, and Khoi's community remain on the lookout for the missing man and continue to hope for his safe return.

    For some reason, I ended up on the FBI page today and came across Khoi's picture. I can't believe there are only a few responses on this thread. Is there any new information? Poor little guy. So sad.

    I believe someone gained his trust and lured him away, maybe a sexual predator.

    I never thought of a sexual predator in his case before but you might be right, Danaya.
    It's been so long and I doubt he is still alive somehow.

    Clark County Sheriff's Office formed a new cold case team this past summer.

    Khoi's disappearance is one of the 28 Major Crime Unit's cold cases that they'll be working on.

    It's been over a year since this 2007 KATU article about Khoi has been updated. But I don't remember seeing all the pictures at the link before. So it's new to me. I couldn't get the video to play, but it's there and I snipped this sweet photo of Khoi from the preview.

    Khoi's been missing 8 years now.

    His Charley profile has been updated with details of disappearance.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/v/vu_khoi.html

    Authorities seem to believe that he was a homicide victim and his body ended up in a landfill in OR. No suspects have been named so far though.

    Khoi has been missing for almost 10 years now. So sad.

    Thank you for posting the new link, neesaki! The Charley Project has been revamped a few months ago.
