Maybe the local Syrian community can help

Assuming you're in Toronto, or another sizeable city, there will be a community of Syrian people living there. There's probably a community center, school, or mosque which is the center of the community, or it'll be a family with lots of connections.

Google and the phone book should get you the basic pointers, then you can go in person to talk to people. It'll take some asking around to find the right people, but they might talk to relatives back in Syria who could help you with information such as checking with newspapers (talking to the people who work there, not just reading them), hospitals, or checking in with the police. It might be more effort and less efficient than the consulate, but it could help.

Re: Maybe the local Syrian community can help

I'm so sorry you're going through this. Maybe you should get on a plane and get over there, you and someone else who is a great navigator. That's what I would do if my brother went missing. Because whether there is email or not, surely there is a damn phone over there somewhere... Phones are a little more prominent that email. If she is as smart as you say she is, a smart person would say, "hey, I haven't written in a few days and they're probably worried about me, I'd better find a phone since there is no internet around here and all..."

Get on a plane and go over there now. She may need you. She may have amnesia and be a Jane Doe in some third world hospital. Good luck and God Bless !

Good ideas Paul. I'm going to look into this and see what can be done.
