Missing British woman, two sons, may be hiding in Toronto
TORONTO – Police have found no trace of a British woman of Somali origin who allegedly abducted her two sons from Manchester in England on April 13, 2010 and is believed to be hiding in Canada or the United States among the Somali community.
The woman Anisa Ibrahim, 31, mother of Khalid, 6, and Ahmed Abubakar, 4, is wanted by the Greater Manchester Police for allegedly breaching a family court order by taking her two boys from their father’s home in Withington without his consent.
She is further believed to have travelled by bus to Amsterdam and from there to Canada.
In a renewed appeal for help from the public South Manchester Detective Inspector Kevin Marriott said: “We have been working tirelessly to find Anisa and the boys since April last year. Inquiries now lead us to believe that she may be in Toronto and we need the public’s help to take this investigation further.
“I am appealing to the Somali community to come forward with any information on the whereabouts of the children and Anisa.
“I would be happy to communicate directly with anyone on the internet or by phone. Any information provided can be treated confidentially.
“It is important to stress that Khalid has a severe skin condition and he does require medical attention. This does concern me and makes it all the more important to make sure Khalid and Ahmed are located as soon as possible.”
