'Please, mom, call someone': Distraught son sends message to still missing Aurora woman

The family of Helen Sedo, last seen leaving her home near Bathurst and St. John's on July 29, want to know that she is safe

"Please, mom, if you are out there, please call someone ... anyone,” is the desperate plea issued by the son of Helen Sedo, who has been missing from her Aurora home for 10 days. 

York Regional Police have issued another appeal for public assistance in locating the 61-year-old woman last seen in the late evening of Wednesday, July 29, when she left her residence on Treegrove Circle near Bathurst Street and St. John’s Sideroad.

“Mom, if you read this I want you to know that I love you very much and that all I want in this world right now is to know you are safe. I understand if you need space and will fully support you in anything you need to be happy! Your grandson needs you, I need you," said her son in a statement issued by police.

Her siblings, too, are sending a message to the deeply missed woman: “We miss you dearly. We are here for you unconditionally. We are desperate. Please contact someone if you are able. You are the glue that keeps our family together. We love you so very much.” 

They also made an appeal for the community's help: "To anyone who has seen or knows about our sister Helen Sedo’s whereabouts or well-being, please contact the police."

Helen Sedo is described as white, 61, 5 feet one inch tall, with dark brown, shoulder-length hair. She wears glasses and was carrying a red-and-olive coloured duffel bag. 

She is driving a 2012 silver Acura with the licence plate CBDY 015.
