One of three missing Chinese students has been located in Toronto in what police believe is part of a scam to extort money from their parents.

On Saturday, police identified a third Chinese student studying in Toronto who they said may have disappeared as a result of the scam.

The suspect or suspects then contacted the students' families and told them that their loved one had been kidnapped and would not be released unless they complied with a hefty ransom.

Police said they were concerned for her safety and think this may be related to two other recent disappearances of Chinese nationals.

Const. Caroline de Kloet said Monday that the investigation into who contacted the students is ongoing.

"The students are somewhat isolated - they don't have a lot of friends or family here in Canada".
