CJAD News has the details of this developing missing person case.
Lynn Esther Iserhoff moved to the Montreal area to get help for substance abuse problems, and was living at a Native woman’s shelter (she is of Cree nationality). However, she reportedly left the shelter and was last with someone else. She told her mother he or she had bought her clothing and high heels. The mother of the missing teen claims that other disturbing things were said to her that had raised red flags. She hadn’t spoken to her since that day, but on January 8, she received text messages that indicated several men were holding Iserhoff against her will. The messages also indicated that the 18-year-old woman had been beaten by the group of men. Her mother fears that she has been forced into a prostitution ring.
“I don’t want her to be transferred somewhere. I don’t know if this is human trafficking. That’s what I’m afraid of deep down. I’m afraid that if she gets raped and get killed and they find her body like that, but I don’t want to think like that. I want to be positive.”
MSN News Canada confirms that police share fears that the woman may have been kidnapped or otherwise met foul play. The report also shares that the missing woman may have been taken to Kitchener, Ontario by the men who could be holding her captive.

Her mother says that all of the photos being shared of her aren’t recent, and that she now has a very noticeable and large scar on her forehead — which was caused after she suffered some kind of accident.
