    "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."

    Repeating myself:

    http://www.680news.com/news/local/a...ase-photo-of-teen-girl-missing-since-february

    TORONTO, Ont. - Toronto Police have released a photo of a missing teen girl who has been missing for over two months.

    She is described as North Korean, 4'11'', 90 pounds, with straight black hair to her neck.

    Police are concerned for her safety and are asking anyone with information to call them immediately.

    "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"

    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?
