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.
Khoi Vu has been deaf since birth, cannot speak, and has a mental disability that leaves him with the skills of a ten-year-old. He communicates by using American Sign Language, although his skills are very limited. Vu does communicate through writing and by using general hand signals, and since he is very outgoing, he may approach anyone.
Vu enjoys playing basketball and video games. He is familiar with the Albertson's grocery store in his neighborhood and may confuse other Albertson's stores with that one.
Although born in Vietnam, Vu is an American citizen who understands, reads, and writes English. He does not understand Vietnamese. Additionally, his right arm/hand is slightly deformed.
