Toronto police say they are worried about a 67-year-old man who left his home in a taxi Thursday morning and never returned.
Michael “Mickey” John Hamill left his Junction-neighbourhood home in a cab shortly before 8:45 a.m. He was dropped off at a restaurant in the area of Runnymede Road and Bloor Street West and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Speaking with CP24 Friday night, Hamill’s daughter-in-law said any tips are appreciated.
“We are looking beyond High Park now and the family appreciates any help,” Elisa De Swert said.
About 60 volunteers are currently taking part in the search, in addition to 20 police officers.
Staff Sgt. Mike Perreault told CP24 early Friday morning that officers at 11 Division have been working around the clock to try and locate the man.
The efforts will continue through the night, police say.
Hamill is described by police as a white male who is about five-foot-eight, 150 pounds with short, thinning white hair. He was clean shaven and wears glasses. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, grey sweater, green shirt and black toque with the letters "R&A” embroidered on the front.
Anyone who spots Hamill is asked to call 11 Division at 416-808-1100.
