    Canada - Jonathan Riley, 48 Meaford ON, May 2013

    I think this case deserves more attention. Jon's sister has posted a video pleading for help. It is so difficult to get official support for missing adults who have mental health issues. But they are loved ones too. Jon's sister puts forth a very compelling case.

    Here is the only news report I could find (a sad statement in itself)

    Grey County OPP say Jon Michael Riley, 47, left his home May 1 telling family he was heading to Toronto for a few days.

    Let's help Judi bring her beloved brother home. Her young son misses his uncle!
    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    Woman believes her missing brother could be one of Bruce McArthur's alleged victims

    Investigators won’t comment on which missing persons cases they’re looking at

    By Taylor Simmons, CBC News Posted: Feb 21, 2018
    As much as Judi Riley doesn't want to believe it, she's sure her brother, Jon, is a victim of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

    "All the pieces fit together. It's the only thing that really makes sense. He simply vanished. He went to Toronto for the weekend and he vanished," she told CBC Toronto.

    Jon Riley was last seen in May of 2013, when he would have been 47 years old.

    Although he lived in Meaford, Ont., at the time he disappeared, his sister said they both grew up in Toronto.

    Jon often visited the city's homeless shelters and the Gay Village, although he wasn't gay himself, according to Judi. He'd also been visiting the city to find work in landscaping — the same job as McArthur.
    In an email to CBC Toronto, lead investigator in the case Det.-Sgt. Hank Idsinga would not confirm whether they're looking at Jon's case.

    "I won't comment on specific cases ... To do so would be unfair to the families who have already been victimized by the disappearance of their loved ones," he said.
