Third missing Chinese student may be victim of ransom scam, police say

Juanwen Zhang 20 was last seen on Wednesday

Toronto police say all three missing Chinese nationals studying in Canada have been located.

Toronto police say they believe the disappearances were linked to a scam in which Chinese students are told to go into hiding and stay off social media or their relatives in China will be hurt.

Toronto police have warned of a scam involving attempts to convince families in China that their loved ones have been kidnapped, demanding a ransom.

Police said they have no evidence to suggest any of the students were actually abducted.

Brister said the three students may have been targeted due to their recent arrival in the country.
