Toronto police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing 16-year-old girl

Toronto police are asking the public to help find a missing teenager who hasn’t been seen since late last month.

According to the report, 16-year-old Janelle Panganiban was last seen in the Jane Street and Finch Avenue West neighborhood on Monday, April 25, 2022 at 8:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, no photo of the teenager has been provided. However, she is described as 5ft 6in, 110lbs, with long straight brown hair. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, black pants and black shoes.

Police are concerned for his safety, but there are currently no active Amber Alerts.

MissingKids reports that alerts are only issued if a child under the age of 18 is believed to have been abducted and is in immediate danger. Information should also be available to help locate the child or abductor, including descriptions of their appearance or the vehicle they were driving.

If you or someone you know has further information on Janelle’s whereabouts, you can contact police at 416-808-1200, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

It should also be noted that social workers from the Canadian Center for Child Protection are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support families when their child goes missing.

“Information and sightings may also be reported online to Canada’s Missing Children’s Resource Centre, Missing Kids, which is operated by the Canadian Center for Child Protection,” reads an excerpt from the report.

Anyone can report a missing person at any time. There is no 24 hour waiting period.

You can report a missing person to the Toronto Police Service by calling the non-emergency number 416-808-2222. If you fear for someone’s immediate safety, call 9-1-1.
