An Amber Alert has been issued for a 15-year-old Mississauga, Ont., girl in connection to an abduction incident on Sunday.
Peel Regional Police said a witness saw two males exiting a silver or grey mini van after making an abrupt stop on St. Barbara Boulevard at Comiskey Crescent at 1:25 p.m. and forced a girl into the vehicle.
The van was last seen heading south on St. Barbara Boulevard towards Derry Road West.
“We attended the area. We were unable to locate the vehicle so we immediately began a canvass, knocking on doors, looking for other witnesses and looking for video,” Const. Harinder Sohi said.
Police said the girl was reported missing by her family at 9:22 p.m. on Sunday.
“Based on the information they provided, being clothing description and physical descriptors, we matched that up with what the witness had described to us earlier,” Sohi said.
“The night before, she had told her parents she was going to bed. When they woke up in the morning, they realized she wasn’t home and assumed she was out. Later on, when she didn’t come home, that’s when they became worried.”
Alyssa Langille is described as female, white, 5 foot 2 inches tall, shoulder length blonde hair, blue eyes. She was wearing a grey sweater, grey sweatpants, and black and red “Air Jordan” running shoes.
The first suspect is described as 24-year-old male, 6 foot 2 inches tall, slim build, brown eyes and brown skin. He was wearing a green long sleeve shirt, grey vest and orange turban.
The second suspect is described as a South Asian male with black hair.
Authorities said the suspect vehicle was captured by a surveillance camera in the area, however they have yet to identify a licence plate number.
Peel police said Langille was reported missing by her parents late last year but returned home on her own accord.
“Late last year when she was reported missing, her parents did have some concerns that they felt that she might be falling into the sex trade industry. We haven’t been able to confirm that as of yet,” Sohi said.
“They didn’t provide us with concrete information. It was more of a hunch they had.”
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact investigators with the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at (905) 453-2121, ext. 1233.
