Amber Alert: Fourteen-year-old abducted in Toronto screamed ‘help me, help me’ police say
An Amber Alert has been issued for a 14-year-old boy who Toronto police say was abducted in the northwestern part of the city.
Police said in a tweet Wednesday night that they are “extremely concerned” for the safety of Shammah Jolayemi.
The teen was last seen Wednesday at 8:25 a.m. in the area of Jane Street and Driftwood Avenue, they said.
Insp. Jim Gotell told CP24 that witnesses have told Toronto police that “a 14 year-old boy was observed to be screaming ‘help me, help me’ and forced into a black Jeep Wrangler by two males, who drove away.”
“This is not a parental abduction,” Gotell said. “We don’t believe this was a joke or any type of prank.”
Police believe the possible abduction occurred at approximately 8:26 a.m. However, Shammah parents did not realize he had not reached school and called police at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
