Police say they are ``truly stumped'' by the disappearance of a Whitby, Ont., man a week ago and are suspending the active search for him in the community east of Toronto.
Det. Sgt. Mitch Martin, the lead investigator in the case, says Durham regional police have had very few leads to go on and that it appears Jeffrey Boucher ``has simply vanished.''
The 52-year-old high school teacher disappeared last Monday after it's believed he headed out for a routine morning run, although no one saw him leave his home.
Martin says police have been in touch with Boucher's family every day since he was reported missing and that police will continue their investigation until they find him.
But police say after a week of searches involving ground, air, canine units, ATVs and a trained volunteer search team, they've thoroughly covered the area around Boucher's home and will be removing their ``public order assets.''
They add that if further evidence is found in another geographic area, they will be immediately deploy there.
