You may have touched on this but I'm curious, so maybe if someone reading along can answer. Does the Canadian government help at all with a search like this? No help from law enforcement whatsoever?

Re: Canadian Police
While it sometimes feels that way, the RCMP (Canadian National Police) are bound by international conventions regarding investigations in other sovereign states. The Syrians aren't allowed to send people into Canada, and thus we can't send Canadian police into Syria. The Canadian government is similarly restricted.
That being said, both agencies have assisted as best they can, especially the Foreign Affairs staff in Damascus and the Ambassador to Syria.
