There have been no sightings of White since his reported disappearance. Police located his van that afternoon in a lot near Lake Shore Boulevard West and Ellis Avenue. His wallet and keys were found inside the vehicle. Const. Ed Parks told Toronto.com that police are still searching for White and are concerned for his safety. He said police have sent out the missing person report to other jurisdictions. They've also scoured social media for any sightings, but so far, nothing has turned up.
“We need Raheem back home safely. We are praying and anticipating his safe return,” White’s mother, Rose Johnson, told Toronto.com. “His friends are up all night searching for him. His girlfriend is so upset. His young brothers are asking what's happening.”
Johnson said she last spoke with White just before his father's birthday on Nov. 29.
“He appeared so excited. He spoke about his new business and he was looking forward to a new chapter in his life,” she said at the time.
White's close friend Christian Evans was the person who initially filed the missing persons report, saying that it's very unlike his friend to go missing.
"He’s the most stable, reliable guy I know,” Evans said, noting that he had no reason to believe that his friend would abruptly leave without saying anything. “Many friends are looking all over the city, at all hours of the day and night to try to find him.”
"He means a lot to us. And it's been really great to see other people who don't even know him connect to what's happening and what we're feeling and what we're doing," White's friend Khadijah Salawu told CP24. "The support is overwhelming in a great way, and we just hope that awareness spreads across the city and people come together to find him."
