Laval Police are looking for an Ethiopian woman who disappeared Monday from a home in the city.

Netsanet Asfaw Tasew, 31, was working as a nanny for a family from Saudi Arabia that is staying with relatives in Quebec for a wedding.

Authorities said the woman does not speak English or French and is not believed to be carrying any money.

Const. Franco Di Genova said she disappeared from the home three days ago when she was left there alone.

He said police suspect she may have chosen to run away.

"You're employed by this family and now you're in a completely different country, as far as we know, she has no family, no friends, and now you just disappear with a passport," Di Genova told CBC News Thursday morning.

Di Genova said it's believed she has no spare clothing with her.

He said she is 1.65 metres, or five feet, four inches, tall and weighs about 120 pounds.

The woman has black hair and dark brown eyes and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt.

Laval Police are asking anyone who knows anything about the missing woman to call them at 450-662-4636 or call  911.
