According to police, they have received several calls asking if there are mass abductions taking place. Const. Victor Kwong says”no” and police have no evidence of foul play in any of the disappearances. But the fact so many releases of missing women and girls were issued in such a short period of time, led to concern. A Twitter hashtag, #torontowomen, has been started. Kwong also said it is not unusual for many pepole to go missing in the city.
Police are concerned about the safety of the missing girls and women. Anyone with any information is asked to contact police at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers.
