UPDATE – Major Crime Investigating Disappearance of Chisar

Missing person Monica Chisar has been forwarded to the Major Crime Unit for further investigation.

Monica was last seen by a friend on July 11, 2018, in the area of Barton Street and Parkdale Avenue North in Hamilton. As a result of further investigation, the Major Crime Unit (MCU) has taken over this matter.

MCU has conducted an overall analysis of the disappearance of Monica Chisar leading investigators to believe that there is a chance foul play exists. However, it remains a possibility that Monica is alive and has simply chosen to disappear for reasons only known to her. Regardless, this matter warrants the further resources that the MCU can provide for this investigation.

We are therefore reminding the community about Monica and are encouraging anyone to come forward with information. Monica did not have much of a history in Hamilton but she had a wide circle of associates across the GTA. It is also believed that she had a connection to Kitchener, which is also of interest to us.

If you have any information that you believe could assist Police with the investigation into this missing person investigation you are asked to contact Staff Sergeant Dave Oleniuk, Major Crime Unit by calling 905-546-3829.
