HARRY BROWN/THE CANADIAN PRESS The parents of a young girl who disappeared from her Kensington, Ont., home last year are hoping her mother’s disappearance will lead to a new lead.
Lily Brown, 30, is still missing and her parents said Tuesday they are hopeful the new lead will help solve their daughter’s disappearance.
In a press release, Lily Brown’s parents said the family wants to share the information they believe will help find Lily’s mother, who is no longer in their custody.
“We are confident that we have a new opportunity to help find her,” said the statement.
“We are hoping that the information provided in this statement will be enough to help us make this possible.”
The family said Lily’s father, Jack Brown, is a licensed counsellor and is responsible for helping people who are suicidal.
Lily Brown disappeared from Kensington in January, 2015.
Her parents said in a statement Tuesday that Jack Brown has no history of mental illness and has always been a positive, loving, and helpful person.
Jack Brown’s daughter was last seen on April 18, 2015, when she left home for work.
She is described as 5-foot-5 and weighs 160 pounds.
The missing girl is a first-generation Canadian who has been studying English in the city for the past few years.
She is described in a police statement as being very shy and quiet.
The family added that Lily’s family believes Jack Brown was involved in the kidnapping of her mother, but they do not know if he is the suspect in that case.
The family has asked the public to assist them with their investigation.
