Toronto police say one of two men reported missing in north Etobicoke earlier this week has been found safe, but the search continues for the other.

Supt. Ron Taverner of 23 Division in north Etobicoke joined local Coun. Michael Ford in appealing for help to locate the men.

“We’ve brought in resources from right across the city, obviously we are taking this to the highest level possible,” Taverner told reporters on Thursday.

A 98-year-old man was last seen on Monday at 12 p.m. in the Kendleton Drive and John Garland Boulevard area.

In an update Thursday afternoon, police said he was found earlier in the day with the assistance of a drone.

Chandulal Gandhi, an 83-year-old man, was last seen on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the Kipling Avenue and Steeles Avenue West area.

Ghandi is described as five-foot-seven with a slim build and has white hair and a white beard.

He was last seen wearing grey dress pants, a black jacket, and a blue baseball cap, police said.

Taverner asked people to check their surveillance videos and be aware of people they come across to see if it matches Ghandi’s description.

“I want to thank the Toronto Police Service, the men and women who are out there day and night looking for these individuals,” Ford said.

Taverner said there is no link to the two men who were stabbed to death in the last two weeks.

“We have nothing to say that they are linked,” Taverner said. “We have no evidence to suggest that is the case.”
