Her sisters told Global News on the weekend it was out of character for her to run off or cease contact with loved ones.

The last form of communication they received from her was just after 3:30 a.m. on Saturday through a fitness tracking device.

Richey’s family drove down from North Bay, Ont., to help look for her this week.

Toronto police issued a statement Monday expressing concern for her safety.
