Calgary Police Service seek public’s assistance

Calgary police are seeking the public’s assistance after the disappearance of Abdikadir Tukhov, who was reported missing more than two years ago and had spent time in Red Deer.

Tukhov, 43, of Calgary, was reported missing by friends on Dec. 11, 2016.

Police said as a result of new information from members of the community, Tukhov’s disappearance is considered suspicious. Friends also believe that he may have been met with foul play.

Tukhov lived a transient lifestyle and spent time in Calgary, Grand Prairie, Edmonton and Red Deer. It is believed he worked as a taxi driver in Grand Prairie prior to his disappearance.

Investigators are seeking assistance to identify a man and a woman seen with Tukhov at the Cambridge Red Deer Hotel (previously the Sheraton Red Deer) in the early morning hours of Dec. 4, 2016.

Police believe they may have information about Tukhov’s disappearance or his activities before he went missing.

Police have released a photo of Tukhov with the unknown man and woman.

The woman is described as 25 to 40 years old, with an average build and brown hair.

The man is described as 30 to 45 years old, with an average build. He can be seen wearing a hat in the photo.

“We know that people in the community have information about Abdikadir’s disappearance,” said Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta of Calgary’s homicide unit.

“Abdikadir left behind a wife and two children and we ask that anyone who has information come forward so that we can provide closure to his friends and family.

“Even what seems like the most insignificant information can sometimes be enough to help detectives solve a case.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Calgary Police Service homicide tip line at 403-428-8877.
