    "We were extremely upset when we couldn’t find them,” said Mary Jo Leddy, founder of Romero House. “(We were) concerned about what to do and very concerned about the younger girl.

    “They were so young and so on their own, and probably from a culture where they were told what to do at every moment of their day — and didn’t know what to do when they were on their own.”

    Leddy does not know how the siblings came to Canada or what happened to their parents, who are believed to be dead. She said they do not speak English, have no friends or family in Toronto, and have “absolutely no cultural coping skills.”

    Last Wednesday, Toronto police released a statement seeking the public’s assistance in locating the 13-year-old girl, whose name is Sol Han. A photograph of the 4-foot-11, 90-pound teenager was released Monday."

    QUESTIONS:

    1. WHY are we only learning about this disappearance now? If it was reported earlier, it certainly didn't get the media attention that MY received.

    2. Are these two missing people somehow related - MY and now we hear of SH.

    3. Is there more to MY's story than meets the eye?

    "The three North Korean women will not have their faces photographed. They will not disclose their names.

    But certain things they will reveal. How they ground tree bark and cooked it into a thin gruel for food. How they were sold to brokers to work as maids or “unofficial wives” in China. How starving neighbours — children as well as adults — were executed for stealing even a morsel of meat.

    “Our lives meant nothing,” one of them says. “We were like flies.”

    The fear that propelled the women to flee the brutality of their homeland clings to them as refugees in Toronto, terrified their freedom in Canada will mean death to family and friends in North Korea, which calls itself the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

    That may explain why some, like 13-year-old Sol Han, reported missing from a local shelter this week, melt away into the broader GTA population. Maybe never to be heard from again"

    Bumping this unusual case, and hoping Sol Han, is okay.

    I can't see how this photo is if a thirteen year old girl. She looks more like 30. Is her brother still missing also?

    Re post.

    Vella said foul play is not suspected but police are concerned for her safety “due to her age.” Police believe she may be with her 20-year-old brother, Huyeok, who investigators have also been unable to reach. He is described as being 5-foot-1 with straight black hair.
    According to Leddy, the Hans seemed determined to manage on their own and often failed to return at night during their short time at Romero House.

    “We were constantly trying to find them. We think they got involved with some kind of group,” said Leddy, who could not elaborate.

    Sae Yun Lee, a pastor with the High Park Korean United Church, said he translated for Romero House a few times and spoke with Huyeok over the phone in early February. At the time, the boy expressed he was anxious to find a place to live, Lee said.
    He said the conversations ended abruptly when the siblings disappeared. The last time he called Huyeok’s number, another Korean man answered and denied knowing the boy or his whereabouts.

    Leddy said her refugee centre has accommodated North Koreans in the past but none have been so young.

    “I think they’d already been through a lot by the time they hit Toronto,” she said, adding their stay at Romero House “was supposed to be a year to get them settled and steadied but that never happened.

    “They came and then they went.”
    Kim does not know the Hans but speculates the siblings may have left for South Korea. He said some North Korean refugees who wind up as “missing persons” have simply gone to South Korea after finding it difficult to adjust to life in Canada.
