The Canadian government is treating the disappearance of a woman from Quebec and her Italian friend in Burkina Faso as a kidnapping, media reports say.
Tacchetto and Blais met in Canada two years ago and have been travelling since last year, visiting European countries before heading to Africa.
Radio-Canada says the feds haven't ruled out the possibility that Sherbrooke native Edith Blais and her Italian friend, Luca Tacchetto, may have been abducted. They were last heard from on December 15 when Blais posted photos from their trip to Facebook.
Blais and Tacchetto were reportedly on their way to Togo to take part in a reforestation project, but there is no indication they left Burkina Faso.
"They never have crossed the border or applied for a visa from Burkina Faso to Togo or Ghana", read a statement posted on a Facebook group created by the woman's family. Since going missing, Bergeron said she's lost a lot of sleep.
While many have reached out with messages of support and possible leads, she says it's hard to know what is worth pursuing.
But Bergeron said her family is "very hopeful to find them alive and well".
Bergeron says she's received many messages from people who claim they've seen the couple in different places.
The Canadian government warns travellers to avoid all "non-essential travel" to Burkina Faso, particularly the northern area and its borders with Mali, Niger, Benin and Togo because of the threat of terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping.
Global Affairs Canada confirmed to CBC News that they are in contact with local authorities to learn more about the situation and that they are providing assistance to the family.
