    I'm non plussed,why the police in Toronto never contacted me. I was living in Palo Alto ,California at the time,and received a phone call from Alison's mom,asking me,if she had by any chance,come out to see me.
    Then she told me Alison was missing .
    needless to say ,I was in shock.
    I was her first serious boyfriend when she was going to school in France . (69-72 )
    I never heard anything after that,and assumed she was found,safe and unharmed.
    recently, I was going through old photos and love letters.
    I found the photos of Alison and a few letters.
    I then thought,it would be nice,to contact here out of the blue,and see what she was doing,and explain what happened back in 1978.
    I couldn't believe,it ,when I pulled up her name.
    She looked very little,like the photos the police posted .
    I contacted an agency in Toronto and spoke to them.
    They assured me the case was still open,and they in turn would have the police in Toronto ,contact me.
    I never heard back from anyone.
    How can the police in Toronto,claim they have looked into every possible scenario ,and never even contact me.
    i have four photos of her.
    two close up head shots.
    She was blind as a bat,without her eyeglasses.
    She must have been wearing contacts,in pictures.
    I wish I could post photos I have .
    if people were looking for a young woman,that looked like the photo,I've seen,it could be very misleading .
    how do I post these pictures ?

    Unfortunately,this painting,in no way looks like Alison. She never had a severe look on her face. I don't know where to begin,in respect to posting pictures . Anyone know who the boyfriend was,and how he could be contacted ?
    I can assure everyone,that has been using the image of Alison ,posted ,will not recognize ,her from the photos I have.
    She would have had to have changed drastically ,in six years. As last I saw her she was possible twenty or twenty one years old.
    Peoples physical characteristics ,don't change that much ,at that age. Apparently ,she still had long blonde hair,but if memory serves me,she was taller than 5ft 6 inches. Also closer to possibly 130 pounds.
    This is so sad,and the Toronto Police did next to nothing .
    How they could not have contacted me,like her mother did,I'll never understand ...

    Sorry Dot, I was really sick, then my washer and dryer went. Dryer is fixed, washer is still down, I have a family of 4 adults plus my 3 year old grandson.

    Hi Jakobean, there are a few ways to post the photos; do you have them as a digital copy? If you do, you can scan or take pics with your cell.
    Are you using a cell phone to post here? It uses the mobile version of Websleuths. If so, you would have to go to the bottom left of the page to switch it to WS2016, then come back here and attach them which can be time consuming if you're not used to message boards. You can email them to me if you'd like roselvr@gmail.com I can post them for you
