Montreal police are setting up a command post in Ahuntsic-Cartierville today after two people — one of them a pastor — went missing five days ago.

Courage Agbezorlie, 28, and Sandra Mensah, 26, went to a Jean-Coutu pharmacy at 5855 Gouin Blvd. West the night of Sunday, March 9 so that Agbezorlie could buy an Opus card (bus pass).

The card was registered as being purchased at 9:47 p.m. — and the pair has not been seen since.

“They are not known to police and the investigators do believe they could be in the Ahuntsic area. It’s really not common for them to leave and not give any news to their family,” said Const. Danny Richer of the Montreal police.

Mensah’s cellphone has been shut off since she left her home.

Neither she, nor Agbezorlie has a valid driver’s license, but Richer said they could have been passengers in a grey Infiniti with Ontario license plates.

Agbezorlie is a pastor and Montreal police said the man has no known enemies, money problems or addictions.

He is a black male with short brown hair and brown eyes. He is 1.77 metres tall (five-foot-eight-inches) and weighs 74 kilograms (163 pounds).

Mensah is a black female with long, braided brown hair and brown eyes. She is 1.67 metres tall (five-foot-five-inches) and weighs 68 kilograms (149 pounds).

The car is an Infiniti model g35x and his Ontario license plate is BSYJ323.

Montreal police will be at the command post as of 11 a.m. at the corner of Laurentian Boulevard and Dudemaine Street.

They are asking that anyone with information about the pair's whereabouts call 514-393-1133.
