TORONTO: A 30-year-old Punjabi singer, who visited Canada for a music performance, has gone missing, prompting authorities to seek the public’s help in locating him.
Lehmber Singh missed his return flight to India on November 5 at 6:30pm at the Person International Airport and his whereabouts since then are not known, Mississauga police said.
Mr Singh has been described by the Peel Regional Police in a public notice – issued yesterday with his photograph – as a 5’5″ tall South Asian man with a beard and moustache, weighing 140 pounds and shoulder-length wavy black hair, slim built and brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing blue jeans, full length black trench coat.
Mr Singh only speaks Punjabi and his English is limited. He also may have a black carry-on bag in his possession. He also had some 100 dollars in his possession and an international cell phone.
“On November 5, Singh was last seen by a family relative at approximately 10:30 am in the area of Derry Road East and Edwards Boulevard in the City of Mississauga,” police said.
Local media said family members and police are concerned for Mr Singh’s well-being as he does not know the area and may be lost in Canada, which is home to a large number of people from India.
