TORONTO – “Tim has been stolen from us.”
Those were the words of Sharlene Bosma – the wife of Tim – at a press conference Thursday afternoon as she fought back tears and described the surreal experience of having her husband disappear.
Tim Bosma, 32, went missing from outside his Ancaster home on Monday just after 9 p.m. when he took two people – apparently interested in buying his truck – on a test-drive.
“He smiled at me and said he’d be right back,” Sharlene said.
The two people contacted him through an ad he placed online.
He was trying to sell his Black 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck with the license plate 726-72W.
“It was just a truck. It is just a truck. You don’t need him. But I do. And our daughter needs her daddy back,” Sharlene said. “Tim is my husband. He is my partner and my best friend. He is the love of my life and the father of my child.”
Bosma was last seen with two white males in their 20s. The first is described as roughly 6’1” and between 170 and 180 pounds. He had short brown hair and was unshaven. He was wearing jeans and a long sleeve orange shirt with running shoes, police said.
The second man was shorter, at approximately 5’9” or 5’10”, police said. He had a small to medium build with dark hair and was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt.
Bosma’s spouse relayed to police the two men may have been from Toronto.
