Stacie Rasberry was last seen in Niagara on Feb. 19, 2022. Police confirmed that she received medical assistance and checked into a shelter under the name Sarah Marlowe. Rasberry was reportedly wearing a black coat, a red toque with a pom-pom, a pink scarf, and brown boots with fur around the tops.

Emily Bailey was reported missing on Jan. 10, 2022, by friends and family. Police say Bailey’s disappearance was “out of character.” She was last seen “leaving an acquaintance’s house” in the Weir St. North area in Hamilton the morning after attending a New Year’s Eve party.

Investigators believe there are individuals who know what happened to Emily and have been encouraging them to come forward.
