UPDATE I: Where’s little Tori? The Oxford Community Police are requesting the assistance of the public (pdf)

“I want my daughter home,” birth father Rodney Stafford said in Southside Park Saturday afternoon. “I want her home.”

Code Amber News Service (CANS) issued a missing endangered person alert on Saturday.

Dozens of police from Oxford, Waterloo Region and London, including dog search teams and trained London search and rescue volunteers, joined the search today. A large-scale search effort involving neighbouring police forces and hundreds of volunteers has scoured numerous lakes, ponds, wooded areas, brushes and properties .

Police say they don’t have enough evidence to even declare her disappearance a result of foul play. They’ve had hundreds of tips from the public.

“Everybody in Canada has Victoria in their hearts right now,” said Woodstock Community Police Const. Laurie-Anne Maitland.

UPDATE III: Ground Search Ends for Missing Tori Stafford

Authorities said Monday they had ended their ground search for a missing 8-year-old Canadian girl a video shows walking off with an unknown woman.

Police keep insisting that Tori walked off willingly with the unknown female from the video; however, how do we know that the person did not lie to the young girl in order to gain her trust? What, like an abductor has never told a victim a lie to get them to go with them?

UPDATE V: Missing Tori Stafford Case Now Considered an Abduction

The case of missing eight-year-old schoolgirl Victoria “Tori” Stafford has now been declared an abduction by the OPP veteran investigator taking over the case.

As was reported in Friday’s edition of The London Free Press, Det.-Insp Bill Renton made that announcement at a morning press during which Oxford police Chief Ron Fraser said Renton was taking over as “case manager” from a local officer.

UPDATE VI:  New Searches for Missing Tori Stafford and Family Realeases Video

On Friday, the Ontario Provincial Police took the lead on the investigation from the Oxford Community Police, a move that made Tara McDonald “very, very happy.”

Her daughter Victoria Stafford did not come home after school on April 8. The third-grade student was last seen on surveillance video walking with an unknown woman.

Though the Oxford Community Police canvassed the neighbourhood and performed an extensive ground search, the OPP was knocking on doors once again over the weekend.

The Under Water Search and Recovery Unit (USRU) scoured waterways in Woodstock, using a sonar device on a pond close to Victoria’s school and other small bodies of water. So far, they haven’t found anything.

“I feel confident. Not that I didn’t before, you know, but I feel better that there’s fresh eyes,” McDonald added
