Jonathan (Jon) Riley left his home in Meaford on April 26, 2013, after leaving a handwritten note for his mother, indicating he was going to Toronto for a few days and did not return.

“Jon was loved by his family, who has never given up hope of finding him. Investigators need your help to bring Jon’s family much needed answers to what happened to him.” said Detective Inspector Jennifer Patton
