On June 24, 2017 at approximately 10:00 AM, San Francisco Police investigators and canine teams from the Alameda County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Team responded to a warehouse in Hayward, CA after workers located what appeared to be human remains. The canine's searched the building, which is the size of a retail warehouse store, and alerted their handlers to the presence of possible human remains.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office responded and took custody of several bags which contained human remains. The identity of the deceased is unknown, pending identification by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Due to the condition of the remains, investigators will need to use DNA testing to identify the deceased.

This warehouse is connected to Bob Tang (aka "Bob Tov") who is a missing person and a person of interest in the disappearance of Piseth Chhay who was last seen on May 14, 2017. Chhay and Tang are family acquaintances. Tang is believed to have fled the country to Cambodia and the Department is working with federal law enforcement partners in an effort to locate Tang. Tang's car was found in an SFO parking lot on May 25, 2017 and was towed to a police impound for processing by CSI.
