Hayward warehouse employees reeling after human remains found

HAYWARD, Calif. (KGO) -- Employees at a Hayward warehouse are reeling Monday morning after human remains were found at the company over the weekend.

Police are doing DNA tests to try and identify the remains-the fear is that they could be those of the missing San Francisco Uber driver Piseth Chhay.

The owner of the warehouse says he spent the morning checking on his employees, making sure everyone is ok. He says they are all a bit shaken, including him. He is the one that smelled something Saturday and called police.

He says the person of interest in the case, Bob Tang, worked at the company for about 20 years.

The family of a missing Uber driver missing for a week and a half is not giving up hope that he'll be found. Police so far aren't talking about the case, except to say they're serving search warrants.

He described Tang as quiet and says if you ask anyone who works there they would never have expect that Tang would be the focus of a murder investigation. But now, bags of human remains have been found at the warehouse where he worked. Police believe Tang has escaped to Cambodia.

Chhay's wife is turning her suspicions to Tang. "I hope and pray that body part wasn't my husband if it is, Bob Tang had something to do with it," Rattana Kim said.

She says the two families have been friends for six years. "We are like family members. We get together, vacation together, cook together. So, I don't know what went wrong," she said.

Chhay disappeared on mother's day. His car was found in the San Francisco's Bayview district. Tang's was found at SFO.

Chhay is the father of two boys. "These two boys want him to come home," Kim said.
