The grey Infiniti was found next to Raimbault Park near the intersection of Gouin Boulevard and Place-St-Germain. 

Police officers are searching the park for clues.

The command post set up by Montreal police at the corner of Laurentian Boulevard and Dudemaine Street has been moved close to the park.

It is the latest development in a disappearance case that has two Montreal families very worried.

Agbezorlie, a young pastor, and family friend Sandra Mensah were last heard from on the night of Sunday, March 9. 

“It’s not like him not to call,” said Agbezorlie's sister Christina Enchill.

"I haven't had even two hours of sleep at night," she said. "It's very stressful." 

Never came back from store

Agbezorlie, 28, and Mensah, 26, went to a Jean Coutu pharmacy at 5855 Gouin Blvd. West the night of Sunday, March 9 after Agbezorlie's mother asked him to go and buy a weekly Opus card (transit pass) for his 17-year-old brother who was staying with him.

His mother spoke to him on the phone around 8 p.m. and Agbezorlie said he would go before the pharmacy closed at 10 p.m., Enchill said.

“After my mom spoke to him, I believe he dressed and called a family friend that lives close by to go with him. That is the Sandra who is missing as well," she said.

The Opus card was registered as being purchased at 9:47 p.m. and security footage from the pharmacy shows them entering and leaving the store. The pair has not been seen since.

The 17-year-old brother staying with Agbezorlie initially thought nothing of his older brother not being home. 

Enchill said he told her that he just figured Agbezorlie had come home after he had gone to bed, and left before he woke up.

The family only discovered he was missing on Monday evening.

“They are not known to police and the investigators do believe they could be in the Ahuntsic area. It’s really not common for them to leave and not give any news to their family,” said Const. Danny Richer of the Montreal police.

Both of their cellphones are shut off.

Agbezorlie, who on Facebook is called "Kobie" by friends and family, is a pastor and Montreal police said the man has no known enemies, money problems or addictions. According to his Facebook page, he studied at Alberta's Prairie Bible College and Institute. 

He is a black male with short brown hair and brown eyes. He is 1.77 metres tall (five-foot-eight-inches) and weighs 74 kilograms (163 pounds). 

Mensah is a black female with long, braided brown hair and brown eyes. She is 1.67 metres tall (five-foot-five-inches) and weighs 68 kilograms (149 pounds).

Police are asking that anyone with information about the pair's whereabouts call 514-393-1133.

"We are really, really worried. We want them to come home, we want them to come home safely," Enchill said.
