Mother of abducted woman longs to hug her daughter

For one year, the mother of Elnaz Hajtamiri has awoken each morning thinking it will be the day she hears from her daughter.

But the phone call doesn’t come.

Hajtamiri was violently abducted from a home in Wasaga Beach one year ago today. She has not been seen or heard from since.

The disturbing details of her case have re-emerged in news headlines today on the anniversary of the abduction. Her family hopes those details will help more people come forward, ultimately bringing Hajtamiri home to her family.

“I just want to hug our daughter again,” wrote Fariba Hajtamiri in a statement released today. “The horrors we have seen, the nightmares we sleep with as our imaginations run wild with possibilities, and the demons we have come face-to-face with during this investigation are hard to comprehend.”

On the evening of Jan. 12, 2022, Elnaz Hajtamiri, 37, was abducted by three Black men who were impersonating police officers. They charged into the Wasaga Beach home where she was staying, grabbed her, dragged her outside, and put her in a white SUV and then drove away with her in the back seat.

Since then, investigators say she has not been seen or heard from.

“Nothing weighs more heavily on our souls than the idea that we may never know what happened to Elnaz,” said her mother, Fariba. “We are perpetually living in a limbo of emotions, and until we know what happened to her, we can’t break out of this endless loop and move forward with the next stage of grief: acceptance.”
