Police say they are not suspects in the kidnapping, but want to speak to the individual(s) as they may have information related to the case.

A $100,000 joint OPP and York Regional Police reward is still available for anyone with information that will lead to Hajtamiri’s whereabouts.

The 37-year-old Elnaz – who also goes by the surname Tamiri – was abducted around 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 12, 2022, from a residence on Trailwood Place in Wasaga Beach. Police say three suspects dressed in police gear, but not actual uniforms, were involved in the kidnapping. They fled in what is believed to be a white Lexus RX sport utility vehicle.

Hajtamiri stands around 160 cm (5’3″) tall, slim build, and had shoulder-length black hair until it had been cut to a shorter length before she was abducted.
