The family has seen wide-spread support in the search of their son through this GoFundMe page, which has surpassed the goal of only $1000. 

"It's been very tough. The school's been very somber this week," says one of Monsieur Frédéric's colleagues, English teacher Dahlia Merlo. "We all love him. He's a very, very kind man. He's new at the school  this year, but he integrated very, very well. He's a cherished member of the staff." 

You can get involved and help by donating to the family. Keep an eye and ear out there, and report any tips to the police by calling 9-1-1 or 514 393-1133
