It has been 36 years since the disappearance of then eight-year-old Nicole Morin from her Etobicoke residence, and the Toronto Police Service is continuing to appeal for information from the public.

On Tuesday, July 30, 1985, at approximately 11 a.m., it is reported that Nicole left her apartment located on the top floor of 627 The West Mall Etobicoke, and was never seen again. She was just eight years old at the time and would be 44 years old today.

At the time, Nicole was described as white, 4’0″, 55 lbs., with straight shoulder-length brown hair, brown eyes, and had a birth mark on her right upper forehead. In 2019, an updated artist’s rendition was released by Toronto Police to show what she could look like today in the hope someone recognized her.

Since that day, community members near and far, have reported numerous tips, yet police have been unable to bring this investigation to a conclusion and it is still unknown what exactly happened.

Today, we ask the community to help us try and answer the question as to what happened to Nicole, and provide closure for her family and friends who continue to miss her.
