Autumn Shaganash missing for 2 months; family raising $10K for reward to find her

It’s been nearly two months since Autumn Shaganash’s family last saw or heard from the 26-year-old and they’re now stepping up efforts in the hope she’ll be found safely.

Ever since the Barrie, Ont., woman went missing, her family has been chasing down leads, organizing searches and putting up missing person posters. Now, to keep up the momentum, they’re hoping to raise $10,000 as a reward to renew interest in her case, with any extra left over going toward hiring a private investigator.

“Imagine if this was your sister, this was your daughter, this was your niece, this was your friend,” said Kimberly Moore, Shaganash’s cousin.

“It’s almost like living in a nightmare … We just want to wake up.”

The family says they’re plagued by thoughts of what could have happened to Shaganash, even worrying she may have become a victim of human trafficking when she disappeared in early June. The Barrie Police Service previously told CBC Toronto that human trafficking could be behind the disappearance.
