Another gay Canadian man has gone missing — Andrew Kinsman, 49, has not been seen since June 26, when he disappeared without making arrangements for his cat or letting anyone know he was leaving:
Andrew is one of the most responsible people I know. He would've never left the house without making sure that the garbage was gonna be taken out, that people that had to come in, that everything was organized ... His cat wasn't fed, and that was what really worried us.
He was last seen heading to Pride celebrations, and friends deny he had any suicidal tendencies.
Kinsman is now one of five gay Canadian men who went missing recently, and one of eight men total who have vanished in the area over the past seven years.
Among the missing is Zhu Jian aka Frank Wang, 25, who disappeared in Toronto in May. Wang, who is not thought to be gay, was last seen getting food at a downtown McDonald's after hitting some bars with friends. He disappeared, his social media halted and, most ominously, his cell phone has been turned off.
Wang's friend, Aashish Oberoi, told Global News:
He normally messages at least a couple of people in the morning to be like, “That was a fun night,” or something else and lets us know what he’s doing. But we haven’t heard anything at all from anyone at all and that’s what I think we find to be the most concerning about this.
So far, police have not connected the cases.
