A 30-year-old Japanese woman who has been studying in Vancouver, Canada, has been missing since Sept 8, Vancouver police said Wednesday.
According to police, the missing woman is Natsumi Kogawa from Aomori Prefecture. She has been studying English in Vancouver since May. Fuji TV quoted local police as saying Kogawa was last seen on Sept 7. She contacted her Canadian friends through the messaging app LINE on the morning of Sept 8. Kogawa’s friends said they were unable to reach her after that and she has not replied to any messages since then.
Police said Kogawa's room in the shared house where she resided showed no signs of having been ransacked, but her backpack, iPhone and wallet were missing.
A Facebook page has been set up to seek help in locating Kogawa's whereabouts.© Japan Today
