BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Battle Creek Police are renewing their search for a missing 37-year-old man, last seen in the city in 2006.

Lian Kulh Thawng originally is from Myanar (Burma), first moved to Guam, then arrived in the United States in 2001 or 2002.

Thawng was last seen at the city’s Intermodal Transportation Center on McCamly Street by family who dropped him off there in December of 2006. It is unknown where he was going.

Family and friends have not heard from him since. Family members only recently discussed the situation with BCPD detectives, during their investigation of a separate, unrelated incident.
