Family of missing Candian girl travel to Syria

May 13th, 2007 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

The family of a Canadian girl, who’s thought to be missing in Syria, are flying into Damascus to help search for her.

32-year-old Nicole Vienneau was due to fly home on Monday – but she’s been missing for six weeks.

Her brother and boyfriend are travelling to Damascus, and will be met by the Canadian Ambassador. Back home, the Syrian Ambassador rushed through free visas to help them get into the country quickly.

They will start their search in the capital, before travelling up to Hama, where Nicole was last seen at the start of April. She was staying at the popular backpacker hotel, the Cairo Hotel, in the centre of Hama.

Two unidentified corpses have been found, but her brother Matthew is sure neither of them are Nicole, because of the dates they died.

If you have any information, or if you are able to help them when they arrive in Syria please visit her brother’s blog or email [email protected]

    I am just curious, how exactly is that more important than Kamal Labwani getting 12 years in jail, and Michel Kilo 3 years??

    Are these news really not that worthy?

    I live in Canada, and I wonder if I go missing, what would my embassy do to find me ? Would the Canadian Gov. grant Visas to my Family to come and look for me. I really Hope the girl turns up fine, we dont need our image tarnished more than it already is.

    Thank you , and keep up the Great work

    Her brother travelled to Syria to help with the seatch. He’s has been posting how nice and friendly all the locals are. I’m a Canadian, and I doubt htis will hinder the Canadian-Syrian relationship at all.

    Besides, Canada is giving little media attention over this matter.

    Hopefully all ends well.
