Maureen Henry, an Ottawa resident, lost touch with her son in 2014. At the time, he was a student at University of Toronto, and living in a fraternity called Beta Theta Pi. Mrs. Henry tried to get help from both Ottawa police and Toronto police, but because Ontario lacks a centralized database for missing people and their DNA, she had to file a new case with each new jurisdiction that she phoned for help. She even spent $6,000 on a private investigator when she felt the police weren’t going to be able to help. Like many other parents who have searched for missing children, Mrs. Henry was pushed to the limit financially and emotionally searching for her son, Dovi.
