    what criteria do leo use to label a disappearance as 'suspicious'?
    it seems more urgent than just characterizing it as 'out of character'. .. are the terms mutually exclusive?

    I'm only speculating of course but I would assume suspicious might be used if the missing person had upcoming plans or appointments that they've missed, or if all their usual patterns of interaction were to suddenly stop, such as social media use, and/or if their banking activity suddenly stops.

    Another reason might be that their residence was left unlocked or with the door open, or they left pets inside, unfed.

    This is my township and I go to that mall all the time. I wonder what could have happened to him. Was he last seen getting in the taxi or at the mall? I've seen both.

    If it was August 30th, that's a Friday. Friday evenings the bank inside that mall usually has a long lineup of people with their paycheques. I wonder if that's what he was doing.

    "As part of the investigation, officers with the Major Crime Unit and West Regional Criminal Operations Unit attended an address on Verna Drive in Tillsonburg on Monday. They gathered evidence at the home, however Blakley is still considered missing. "

    Family is commenting in the Facebook group Talk Tillsonburg that it is unlike him to disappear and they just want closure.
