Officers from 51 Division are continuing their investigation into the disappearance of two men from the Church Street and Wellesley Street area.
Selim Esen, 44, was last seen on Friday, April 14, 2017, in the Bloor Street and Yonge Street area.
He is quite familiar with the Church Street and Wellesley Street area, and frequents the Ted Rogers Way area.
He is described as 5’10”, 150 lbs., brown eyes, brown hair, full beard. He was often in possession of a silver suitcase with wheels, a photograph of which is attached.
Andrew Kinsman, 49, was last seen on Monday, June, 26, 2017, near 71 Winchester Street.
He is described as 6’4”, 220 lbs., brown hair, full beard. He has a tattoo on his right (mid) arm with the word “Queer” and another tattoo with an expletive on the right side of his chest. He is also familiar with the Church Street and Wellesley Street area.
Both men were active on social media dating applications.
There has been some suggestion, within the Church/Wellesley community, that the disappearances of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen are linked as well as with three other men reported missing from the same area from 2010 to 2012. Detailed investigation and evidence obtained, thus far, in the course of both investigations, has not confirmed a link although, as part of the police investigation, this is being considered. The disappearance of both men is considered suspicious. It is out of character for both, as is the absence of communication with people they were habitually in contact with.
A dedicated team is in the process of being established to allow officers assigned to these investigations to concentrate solely on the disappearance of these two men.
