The Edmonton Police Service is asking for the public’s help locating a missing 47-year-old man.

Jose Serafin Samaco, 47, was last seen leaving his place of employment at West Edmonton Mall on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019, at approximately 6 p.m. and investigators believe he may have returned to his residence in the area of 108 Street and Jasper Avenue before going missing. Samaco was reported missing by a friend on Sunday, Feb. 3.


Samaco is described as a 5’6” tall Asian male weighing approximately 165 lbs. He has brown eyes, black hair and was last seen wearing a grey winter jacket and black pants.


Along with a photo of Samaco (below), detectives have also included a photo of him riding a downtown bound ETS bus on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019.

Missing: Jose Serafin Samaco, 46



Samaco’s disappearance is considered to be out of character, and as a result, there are concerns for his well-being. There are, however, no indications of foul play at this time. 


Anyone who has information about Samaco’s disappearance is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
