Kingston, Ontario – A 17-year-old female with recent Kingston connections has not made contact with family in over a week after she was supposed to take a bus to Edmonton, Alberta.
Leah Marie LANE had recently been staying in Kingston as of September, having come from the Brockville area. On September 20, 2016, she purchased a Greyhound bus ticket in Kingston to begin a journey with intentions to travel and possibly even move to Edmonton, Alberta. There was a stopover beginning in Toronto with another planned for Winnipeg. While Kingston Police have been able to verify locally that LANE left Kingston on the bus, investigators have not been able to determine if she arrived, stayed in Toronto and possibly carried on from there. LANE did make mention to a witness she had friends in the Toronto area.
While LANE’s family are concerned for her well-being, she has been known to be transient and to only make contact once a week and sometimes longer. She may also be directly avoiding any contact with police. There is no evidence or suspicion of foul play at this point in the investigation. Regular investigative avenues have not been able to locate LANE and determine which city she was last in. Detectives are asking members of the public to be on the lookout for her and if believed to be seen contact your local police service. LANE is listed on the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) as missing. LANE is asked to either contact a direct family member, Kingston Police or a police service in which she’s currently residing to confirm her safety.
LANE is described as Caucasian, 5’1” in height, approximately 100 pounds in weight, thin build, fair complexion, blue eyes, dyed black hair (naturally red), with piercings in her nose, lip and eyebrow.
Anyone with information is please asked to contact Detective Jason Alblas at 613-549-4660 ext 6267 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
