Officers from the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau of the Peel Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating two missing people. The cases are not connected.
One is a 24 year-old female from Brampton, Shannon Taffe who was last seen on Sunday, June 5, at approximately 11:00 a.m. at the GO Transport bus station in the area of Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga. Police believe that she was taking a bus to the Burlington or Hamilton area.
Shannon Taffe is described as female, 5’9” tall, 150 pounds, with a medium build, black shoulder length hair and brown eyes. Taffe was wearing grey track pants, a white ‘Mickey Mouse’ crew neck sweater and grey Adidas shoes. Police and family are concerned for the safety and well-being of Taffe, as is out of character for her to be missing for such a length of time.
The other person missing is an 82-year-old man. Alvino Valraschin, was last seen on Tuesday June 7, 2016, at approximately 5:15 p.m., leaving the area of the Westwood Mall, located at 7205 Goreway Drive in the City of Mississauga.
Alvino is described as male, white, 5’6”, 165lbs, medium build, clean shaven, balding with very short grey hair. He was last seen wearing a blue spring jacket, blue short sleeve polo style shirt with horizontal lines, beige pants, grey slip on shoes and a grey fedora style hat. He walks with a hunch and uses a burgundy walker.
Family and police are concerned for the safety and health condition of Alvino.
