Jessilyn Paulhus and her son Ryan have been missing from Toronto since June 29. Police there say they may be in Calgary.

Cops are on the lookout for a missing Toronto woman and her young son and believe she may be somewhere in Calgary.

Police in Toronto are working with Calgary police and asking for the public’s help to find 20-year-old Jessilyn Paulhus and her five-month-old son Ryan Tenhave, who disappeared from the Ontario city on June 29.

Toronto police Sgt. Lorenzo Brefsan said yesterday that Paulhus has family and friends in Western Canada and may be staying with them.

“This is not a kidnapping case. We’re worried about the welfare of the mother and her child, as no one has heard from them. It seems as though they have dropped off the face of the earth,” Brefsan said, adding police are treating the case as a missing persons’ file.

Paulhus was living on the streets with her son in Toronto and is known as a “squeegee kid” and may be doing the same thing on the streets of Calgary, Brefsan said.

“We just want to make sure she is OK. We want the public to keep their eyes open and let us know if they see anything,” he said.

They were last seen on Friday, June 29 in the Sherbourne Street/Carlton Street area of Toronto.

Paulhus is described as a white female, about 5-ft.-7, 115 lbs. with light brown hair that's shaved on the left side of her head and longer on the right. She has a pierced tongue and was last seen wearing torn blue jeans and a white t-shirt with an unknown logo on the front.

Five-month-old Ryan is about 2-ft.-tall, 12 lbs., with light brown hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion.
