    ''Police have stepped up their search for two seniors who went missing in the city’s Rexdale neighbouhood earlier this week.''

    Police have been scouring the neighbourhood for both men in recent days but have been unable to locate them. On Thursday, police escalated their response to a Level 3 search, which is the highest possible level.

    As part of a Level 3 search police draw on a number of specialized resources, including the mounted unit and the marine unit. They also bring in officers from other divisions to assist with the search.''

    “When a search goes to a level 3 essentially what is happening is that emergency management is stepping in to provide management and support alongside with our partners here in 23 Division,” Sgt. Sean Cosgrove, who is overseeing the search effort, told CP24 on Thursday morning. “We are coming out here to put a fresh pair of eyes on the investigation.”


    Police have already utilized drones to search the general areas where the men were last seen and have also brought in members from its mounted unit to complete a search of nearby parks.


    Cosgrove said that in the coming days police will be bringing in further specialized resources to search nearby ravines and trails as well.''

    Mr Gandhi looks pretty spry, the weather has been pleasant the last few days - he could have walked a very far distance, but why and where?

    Just a thought, assuming that CG is Indian, would he possibly head for "Little India", maybe craving for some food or something else he misses from his youth? imo, speculation.

    ''Supt. Ron Taverner, spokesperson for the Toronto police's 23 Division, called on residents to check their back yards and surveillance camera video for any sign of Chandulal Gandhi.

    Gandhi was last seen on Sept. 15 at about 5 p.m. in the area of Kipling Avenue and Steeles Avenue West. He speaks only Hindi. He went missing from his home.''

    ''In the updated photo, he is also wearing white gloves.''
    ''Taverner noted that the cap and gloves may have been discarded by now.''
    Taverner said there have been very few sightings and no tips from the public so far.

    If anyone sees Gandhi, he or she is urged to call 911.''

    :( I hate this kind of update. I'd so hoped they'd find him safe and well somewhere. Rest in peace, Mr. Ghandi. My thoughts and prayers go out for his loved ones.
