A man reported missing this week has been found dead in a car on Wednesday night.

Vimal Chand, 29, was reported missing on Sunday and was found four days later murdered in a car near Hyland Elementary School at 66 Avenue and 140 Street.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has confirmed they now have conduct of the investigation.

"I can confirm that the body of the young man located inside the car was that of 29-year-old Vimal Chand of Surrey," said IHIT Cpl. Bari Emam. "This investigation is in the very early stages and the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr.Chand are yet to be determined."

Chand had a criminal record, including a conviction for assault with a weapon.

But his sister told CBC News he was a family man who hadn't been leading a high-risk lifestyle.

It's Surrey's seventh killing of the year.
