Message From Chief Andrew Fletcher

(Bradford/Innisfil, ON) On behalf of South Simcoe Police Service, I would like to express our deepest condolences to the family of Siem Zerezghi. I would also like to extend our sympathy to the community of Bradford West Gwillimbury and everyone impacted by this. There was an incredible outpouring of concern and support for Siem and his family during these difficult days. We join you all in your grief.

The South Simcoe Police Service used everything we had to find Siem, including assistance from neighboring police services and other first responders, but unfortunately the search ended in a way no one wanted. Our team is feeling the impact of this and wish we could have changed the outcome. We are continuing with the investigation and will be supporting the family in the weeks ahead.

This loss will be felt deeply in the hearts of everyone. We are posting counselling resources on our website. If you or your children are struggling, please reach out.

No media availability is planned for today.
