Toronto teenager still missing hours after Amber Alert; believed abducted


Police are continuing their search for a 14-year-old boy who they believe was forced into a Jeep and abducted in Toronto on Wednesday morning (March 4).

Toronto police issued an Amber Alert for Shammah Jolayemi shortly after 12 a.m. this morning (March 5).

They say they're "extremely concerned" for his safety.

The teen was last seen Wednesday morning in the area of Jane Street and Driftwood Avenue.

Insp. Jim Gotell told a news conference that witnesses saw the boy being forced into a black Jeep Wrangler after screaming "help me! help me!"

Police say they are looking for two men, between 18 and 22 years old, who were wearing black jackets and bandanas on their heads.

Officers are also looking for the Jeep, which they say has oversized front tires and a front push bar with round fog lights.

Investigators say they want to speak to the boy's stepbrother, Olalekan Osikoya.

Shammah is described as about six feet tall, with a slim build.

He was wearing a grey hoody, grey track pants with a thin orange stripe, shiny black puffy coat, and black and yellow Air Jordan shoes.

Investigators offered no further details as of Thursday morning.
