Investigators say they have received “credible information” that Calloo could be hiding with associates or family members outside of Windsor — in the cities of Chatham, Sarnia, London, Hamilton, the Niagara Region, or the Greater Toronto Area.

“We strongly urge anyone in these cities with any information about Malique Calloo to come forward to help us provide closure and justice for the victim’s family,” said Staff Sgt. Joe Faddoul of the Windsor police Major Crimes Unit.
