    Canada - Andrew Kinsman, 49, Toronto, 26 June 2017

    https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/201...uspicious.html


    Toronto police are now considering the disappearance of a 49-year-old man suspicious and say they are concerned for his safety.

    Cabbagetown resident Andrew Kinsman has been missing for almost a week after he was last seen near Parliament and Winchester Sts. on June 26.

    Police say the missing person report is being treated as suspicious because people who know Kinsman describe his disappearance as “completely out of character.”
    Kinsman is the superintendant of his building in Cabbagetown. He was reported missing after a neighbour checked in on his apartment and found his cat unfed, and the building’s garbage had not been taken out.

    Many describe Kinsman as a well-known member of the Cabbagetown community.

    On his Facebook page, Kinsman says he worked at Toronto HIV/AIDS Network, a local advocacy group. He is also a longtime volunteer at the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation.

    According to friends, Kinsman said he was meeting up with a couple from Australia who were visiting Toronto during Pride weekend.

    Healey says he saw Kinsman Sunday night as he headed back over to Church Street to continue his Toronto Pride celebrations.
    "He was happy, he was actually excited to go back out to see more of Pride," he said. "It's just totally out of character for him to up and leave like that."
    Kinsman is described as approximately 6’2” with a medium to stocky build, brown buzz-cut hair and beard.

    He wears glasses and has a vertical scar on each of his knees from past surgeries, along with two tattoos – an armband-type tattoo with wording on his right bicep and an armband with an expletive word tattooed on the left side of his chest.

    Kinsman is often seen wearing cargo shorts or brown leather Birkenstock sandals.

    Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-5100.

    Thanks for posting this, it seems a search is getting organized, also noting something that i was hesitant to connect to this case, but seeing that it was suggested on that fb page, here goes, a thread started in 2013 with a newish article from " VICE" posted today....

    Canada - 3 men missing in same Toronto ON neighborhood, 2010-2012

    http://www.680news.com/2013/06/06/po...ellesley-area/

    "TORONTO, Ont. – Police canvassed the Church and Wellesley area, Thursday, looking to see if there is a connection between three missing men who were all regulars in the neighbourhood. Two disappeared in late 2010 and a third in 2012.

    Toronto police said the three men did not know each other. They have been identified as Majeed “Hamid” Kayhan, 58, Abdulbasir “Basir” Faizi, 44 and Skandaraj “Skanda” Navaratnam, 40 years of age.

    Constable Tony Vella told 680News the first man was seen leaving a bar with an unknown man"

    OK I saw a man walking around without a shirt on, beard, very big with a bit of a belly. This was during Pride. Would he walk around without a shirt? I work near the village so there are many men who I may have seen. I can't remember which day it was but it was on Wellesley and Jarvis. Around 3-3:30 pm

    OK I see a photo on his fb on him without a shirt. Similar to the man I saw but he is more hairy than what I remember. Also the man I saw was bigger in the chest and belly. He also had arm tattoos but I can't remember details.

    So no one know what he was wearing when they last saw him? I see that he wears cargo short and birkenstocks.

    I'm worried. There are many people who are not very gay-friendly and there are the other men who have never been found, as dotr posted upthread.

    Bit of a locations map for Andrew: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pk...zg&usp=sharing

    I think he might be on Fido cell network (per his Facebook) which uses Rogers towers, so I added in a few towers in his neighborhood.

    They're searching the Leslie St Spit today so I guessed at a walking route from his house.

    I added in the approximate last know locations of 3 other missing gay men from that area, Skanda, Hamid & Bazir (missing since 2010-2012, never solved).

    I indicated a general area where another local man is missing, Mark Pearson. Different area but close-ish.
