as far as possible,” Ms Ly said.

Family appeals for help to find missing man
November 10 2015 Fairfield City Champion
IT'S been 50 days since Alan Ly disappeared and his worried family and
friends are searching for him.
Mr Ly, 25, was last seen 2pm on Monday, September 22 at his parents' home in
Binna Burra Street, Villawood.
His phone and bank account have not been accessed.
His sister, Melissa Ly, 35, has made impassioned pleas for him to come home
safely and said his absence has been "heart-wrenching".
"We're missing him badly. We want him to come back and be safe and be with
our family," Ms Ly said.
"It's painful — not knowing anything; the fact that he's not with us or that
we can't just call him and talk to him and just see him."
His sister described Mr Ly as "family orientated" with a small circle of
friends and dedicated to fitness and sport.
She believed the death of their father a few months ago may have triggered his
"We couldn't tell at the time, but for him to disappear this long he must
have taken it really hard," she said.
"He was planning on taking a break after Dad passed away and we figured he
needed a break from everything," she said.
"But everyone was shocked by his disappearance — no one expected it."
Among his circle of friends he was known for being "jokester" with a stoic
personality, said his childhood friend of 19 years, David Lin.
He said Mr Ly planned to move to Japan for six months, to live in Tokyo.
"I'm not sure where he might have gone, but this is all very out of
character for him."
Ms Ly and Mr Lin said it was "extremely concerning" that Mr Ly has not made
contact nor accessed his phone or bank account.
Fairfield police said they were working with the missing persons unit and
they were unable to comment further.
Anyone with information on Alan Ly's whereabouts should ring Fairfield
police on 9728 8399 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
