Elnaz Hajtamiri’s family desperately seeks answers 9 months after his disappearance


It’s been 172 agonizing days for Elnaz Hajtamiri’s family since she was allegedly dragged barefoot from a home in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, leaving loved ones wondering if they would ever see her alive again.

Hajtamiri’s family released a statement to CTV News, pleading for closure and desperate for answers: “It has been almost nine long months without our beautiful daughter, and the pain we feel without her here is immeasurable.

We implore these men to share with us information about her plight and bring peace to all of us who suffer without her. Bringing a worthy resolution to the story of Elnaz is the only good thing we can ask to get out of this painful journey. If anyone can help share information with us, we look forward to your advice every day.”

The family also expressed their gratitude to the detectives and police working on the case, saying they were confident there would be “resolution and justice”.

Hajtamiri was reportedly abducted on January 12 by three men posing as cops claiming to have a warrant for her arrest. Her family say she was picked up in a white Lexus SUV and have not seen or heard from her since.

In the nine months since her disappearance, three men have been arrested, including Hajtamiri’s former boyfriend, Mohamad Lilo.

Lilo, 35, was arrested in July and faces charges of attempted murder and kidnapping. He was behind bars at the North Central Correctional Center in Penetanguishene, Ontario. and was denied bail last month.

Hajtamiri’s family say that Elnaz had ended his relationship with Lilo a few months before his disappearance.

Along with the former boyfriend, two other people face charges in connection with a violent assault on Hajtamiri a few weeks before her disappearance.

Riyasat Singh and Harshdeep Binner face charges of attempted murder, attempted kidnapping, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and mischief under $5,000.

According to York Regional Police, Hajtamiri was hit in the head with a frying pan in late December in an underground parking lot in Richmond Hill, Ont. The incident left him with a head wound requiring around 40 stitches.

Police also said they seized a tracking device, which her family said was found on her car after the assault.

Lilo’s lawyer hopes to have his client tried before a judge and jury in French. He is scheduled for another court appearance on Monday.
