Please help spread the word about missing Niram Shouldice out of Lion’s Head, Ontario.
UPDATE 2- April 1st, 2017- Niram’s mother Zena has spoken to the Owen Sound Sun Times and has revealed additional details regarding Niram and his disappearance:
- Approximately 60 volunteers helped with a search conducted in the Lion’s Head area, as well as near Niram’s Bruce Road 9 residence. Police have also searched the area twice and the investigation into Niram’s disappearance is ongoing.
- Despite being a well-known Lion’s Head resident, the police have received no tips regarding Niram’s disappearance, something Zena has referred to as “alarming.”
- Niram’s phone DID NOT ping off of a York region cell tower as previously thought. It has been learned that a friend visiting Niram had set up a WiFI hotspot. An app was later used to scramble their location coordinates.
- Niram’s home displayed indications that he had planned to return, including groceries, a new phone charger and ear buds, as well as a stack of T4s for taxes.
- Zena confirms that there has been zero activity on her son’s cell phone or bank account since March 2nd, 2017. She also states that Niram has no valid ID and his driver’s license is expired.
- Zena’s last contact with Niram was via Facebook, where he responded twice to a chain letter about “Karma and ten angels coming to visit you”. He originally responded with a thumbs up and later sent the same chain letter back.
- It is revealed that Niram had previously struggled with drugs but did not consider himself to be an addict. Although he was known to binge with alcohol and drugs, he would also experience extended periods of sobriety. Zena says: “He talked about actually moving to Owen Sound and looking for work there and a place to live.” She adds that he was “very honest about what he had been using” and vowed to quit.
- Zena had visited Niram on February 20th, 2017. She purchased Niram a new cell phone and he stayed with her until February 24th, 2017, when she drove him to Hepworth where he was meeting his father. During this time, Niram did not display signs of depression or any inclination towards self-harm.
- Zena says, “I feel that something along the lines of drug use is involved.” She fears that Niram may have overdosed, “But then again, where is his body?”
PLEASE NOTE: Residents are being requested to check all outbuildings, trailers, cars, and hunt camps in the Ferndale/Lion’s Head area.
UPDATE — Niram’s mother has revealed that Niram’s cell phone last pinged off a cell tower in the York Region of Toronto. For additional information regarding the search for Niram, see the “INFORMATION & HELP FOR NIRAM” Facebook group.
