The OPP received a call about an abandoned car and officers found the car around 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

Kim, a 38-year-old father of two, was last seen around 7 a.m. on Oct. 2, 2017, near his home in the area of Bayview Avenue and Royal Orchard Boulevard.

He reportedly told his wife he would be home late that day because he had a big meeting.

According to the family, Kim did not show up for work that day, having called in sick that morning.

Police said at the time that Kim had a camping permit for Algonquin Park and made a phone call from somewhere in the North Bay area.

Family members said they¬†didn’t know why Kim would be in North Bay.
