Yes, I belive Police would have found evidence, but they were probably apprehended between home and workplace. As much as the city council is trying to spruce up the downtown Edmonton, and it is a very lovely place now...I wouldn't be caught down there unless I was in a locked vehicle.
Here is the article on the couple:http://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/2011/01/22/16990831.html
EDMONTON - Friends and colleagues are calling the disappearance of an Edmonton couple "beyond unusual."
The last time local business owners 72-year-old Perry Kit Wong and his common-law wife Eloise Fendelet, 71, were seen was Dec. 27.
The pair were supposed to return to work on Jan. 3, but colleagues have yet to see or hear any trace of them, sparking the police to get involved.
"We have now listed them as missing persons," said Const. Sean Jenkinson with the city police missing persons unit. "It causes concern for ourselves, as investigators, that we haven't been able to track them down and the fact that people know them best have concerns they are not around."
According to a close friend and employee, who did not want to be named, Fendelet has owned her small dental lab for the past 33 years and treated the business "like her baby."
When the couple would go on holidays, they would let staff know weeks ahead of time, and would often call to check in while they were away. Leaving the business without notice would be completely out of character, the man added.
The man said the couple don't have any relatives in Edmonton, with Fendelet hailing from Saskatchewan and Wong from China.
The couple also don't have any children, he said, but Fendelet's pride and joy is her tortoise Ruby, who she keeps at the office.
Trying to sleep at night without any word from the couple has been difficult for everyone who knows them, he said.
"This is not something I wish anybody to have to go through. This goes beyond unusual behaviour to the point where it's inconceivable behaviour," said the man, who is pleading for the couple to contact their employees to let them know they are OK.
"When you lay awake at night, things enter your mind. I would hate to think any type of misfortune fell on them. I don't even want to think about that."
Police said the couple's vehicles have been accounted for, although it is possible they could have rented a vehicle.
Bank records have also been checked, along with transportation companies to see if they have traveled somewhere, but so far police said there has been no activity to help them determine the location of the couple, described as "active."
"At this time, we just feel it's in our best interest to go out to the public," said Jenkinson, who didn't say if police are treating the disappearance as suspicious. "It's out of character for the couple. All options are on the table."
