Tuesday, September 14th, 2010..will mark one year since the suspicious disappearance of Toronto teen Mariam Makhniashvili. In the space of one year, a teen could be anywhere, but Missing Children Society of Canada is hoping that targeting the last known place she was seen, will help shed some light on the matter.
MCSC Investigator and former police detective Dan Picken stated,“Someone knows what happened to Mariam. We are offering them an opportunity to help this family, and to collect a sizeable reward in return,"
On the morning of September 14th, 2009, Mariam walked to school at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, with her younger brother George. When they arrived at the school, the pair went their separate ways - George headed towards the back entrance, while Mariam walked around to use the front entrance. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, but it would be the last time George would see his older sister.
Mariam, new to the Toronto area, had only been a student at her high school for a few days, since the start of the new school year that September. Mariam’s parents have said that her disappearance was completely out of character for the girl, whom they described as quiet and shy.
Missing Children Society of Canada will be targeting the Greater Toronto area beginning September 14, 2010 in conjunction with the one year anniversary of Mariam’s disappearance. MCSC will be conducting a targeted poster campaign in Toronto, offering confidential communications to their 24-hour toll-free tip line and a new reward of $10,000 for any information leading to Mariam’s whereabouts. If you have any information about this, or any other missing children, please contact the confidential 24-hour toll free line at 1.800.661.6160
Please review their news item for additional information and details about the reward conditions.
