The Disappearance Of Toronto Teen Lily Constant Has Authorities Concerned
It's every parent's nightmare when a child goes missing.
Rebecca Marsh, the mother of the east Toronto teen Lily Constant said she was last seen on Nov. 2nd or 3rd, 2019 at an Airbnb in Scarborough.
It has now been nearly two weeks since the 15-year-old vanished without a trace.
She is described as 5'3" with a slim build, blue eyes and long, straight blond hair, and was last seen wearing a red zip-up hooded sweater and black track pants, and carrying a JanSport backpack. She left without her cellphone or identification and has very little personal effects.
Lily, who attended R.H. McGregor Elementary School and Leaside High School for a short time, has had no contact with her family for close to two weeks. Marsh has said that her last communication with Lily was a Facebook message assuring her she was with people who support her.
Marsh has urged anyone with information to contact the police and not to speculate and spread information on Facebook.
Marsh said the family appreciates the public support but there’s a lot of misinformation. She asked people not to share or believe anything on social media unless it has been verified.
Toronto Police Constable Alex Li said police have received a number of calls and tips about Lily’s disappearance and they are following up on these tips.
“We are definitely getting information pertaining to Lily’s case and anyone with details should contact the authorities directly. Any information to assist our investigation would be greatly appreciated,” Li said.
Police remain concerned for Lily’s safety, but do not have any evidence suggesting luring or sex trafficking.
Lily’s father Lee Constant, thinks otherwise. He said that their daughter’s behavior changed drastically back in the summer. She was on her phone continuously chatting and talking. Constant felt that she might have some connections in Montreal and that she may be heading in that direction.
They thought she perhaps had a boyfriend but she shared very little information with them.
She dropped out of school and contacted her friends telling them that she didn’t want to be friends anymore. She had talked about eloping.
He said they believe their daughter may have been chatting online with men and may be under the influence of someone much older.
Lily’s parents both said they just want to hear from Lily to know she’s okay and that she’s safe.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5500 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
