Chinese student Wanzhen Lu, who was violently taken from an underground parking garage in Markham, Ont., north of Toronto on Saturday has been found safe.
Const. Andy Pattenden with York Regional Police told a news conference late Tuesday night that Lu showed at a home in the Gravenhurst, Ont., earlier in the evening and asked the homeowner for help.
Pattenden said the Ontario Provincial Police were called to the home and Lu was then taken to a hospital for treatment of what he said were minor injuries.
Pattenden also said that four suspects wanted in connection with Lu’s abduction remained at large and that investigative efforts, including determining a motive for the abduction, were “far from over.”
A 35-year-old Toronto man was arrested Tuesday in connection with the case, but Pattenden said he had subsequently been released without charge.
The officer credited “relentless pressure” from investigators, the media and the public for the successful outcome of the case, and said that Lu was being reunited with his parents who had arrived in Toronto from China.
