Sharon Lewis wants to see her grandson again.
Lewis, a member of the Cowichan Tribes, said her grandson, 19-year old Kai Neufield, went missing in Toronto on Dec. 28, 2018.
She said Neufield, who is also a member of the Cowichan Tribes, was living in Toronto for about a year with his mother and was looking for work when he disappeared.
Lewis said she has been in constant contact with the police in Toronto since Neufield’s disappearance, but there are still no leads.
“My family and I are so sad,” she said.
“He’s been missing a long time now and we are afraid for his person. We need awareness, support and funds to travel to Toronto to help his mother find him, as well as funds for a reward.”
Lewis said a GoFundMe page, which can be found at https://www.gofundme.com/Kai-Neufield-Missing, has been set up and she hopes to raise $10,000.
She said $5,000 is needed for plane tickets to Toronto, and accommodations for herself and her son while in the city organizing a search for Neufield.
The other $5,000 will be used as a reward for anyone who has any information on the disappearance.
Kai Neufield was last seen in the Yonge St./Queen St. area of downtown Toronto.
He is described as six-foot, 150 pounds, light complexion, and has short wavy brown hair along with some facial hair.
Neufield was last seen wearing a brown winter jacket and carrying several bags, a backpack and a suitcase.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Toronto police at 416-808-4100, or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
