Patel was last seen when he left his home around 11 p.m. on Sunday night to go to work at 7-Eleven on Watt Street. He never made it to his shift.
Patel’s wife, Hilpa Patel, says she is shocked at the disappearance.
“He’s a very particular person. If he misses a call from somebody, whenever he sees his phone, immediately he replies,” she said in an interview with CBC on Wednesday.
On Friday, a group of approximately 20 people stood and watched as crews pulled the car from the water.
