Can you help bring Autumn home?

Published on: Jun 12, 2024 | Categories: ,

Today is a sombre day, as June 12, marks the day one year ago that the Barrie Police Service first received information that Autumn Shaganash was missing. It symbolizes a significant mark on an ongoing investigative timeline that detectives from the Service’s Major Crime Unit hope will one day conclude when Autumn is reunited with her family.

In the past year, Autumn Shaganash has been subject of numerous searches, a recent electronic billboard and transit bus campaign and on February 8 of this year, the Barrie Police Service’s Board authorized a reward of up to $50,000 for information confirming her current whereabouts.

Detectives have followed up countless leads and tips, but none of them have help to determine the whereabouts of this missing Barrie resident who was 26-years old at the time of her disappearance. When last seen on Saturday June 10, between 10:00 a.m. and noon hour near Sunnidale Park, she was wearing tan-coloured leggings, slip on Puma sandals, black hoodie and carrying a black and tan purse.

Video surveillance from a residential home in the area has captured her walking with a male, each of them carrying a ski. The male was walking just ahead of her as they made their way towards the Barrie waterfront to watch an Air Show. Autumn never made it; as the friend, who has been interviewed by detectives, states at one point he looked back and Autumn was no longer following him. She just vanished into thin air, without a sound or cry for help, she was gone and never seen or heard from again.

“Our Major Crime Unit and our detectives have never lost sight of our focus of reuniting Autumn with her family” states Sgt. Brett Carleton who is leading this complex and very challenging investigation.  Sgt. Carleton adds, “If you are someone who has information that can assist this investigation, I encourage you to call Barrie Police now – let’s work together to bring Autum home.”
