7 September 2006: A hazardous materials (HAZMAT) unit responded to a “LEVEL THREE EMERGENCY,” the most serious category of threat, to a private residence located at 1643 Kathryn Avenue, London, Ontario, Canada on Tuesday evening, September 5th. As initially reported by A-Channel News, the HAZMAT team responded following what was described as a “strange series of events” that includes “a 68 year-old missing woman with dementia, her 82 year-old sickly husband, and a chemistry lab in the rear of the residence.”

According to police reports, 68 year-old Annette Serdarevich has been missing for 3 days and her husband, Bogdan Serdarevich, 82, was found in the residence in poor physical condition and was taken to the hospital. As police searched the premises for signs of the woman or clues to her disappearance, police found the chemistry lab and what they publicly described as a “small amount of radioactive material” at the lab.

Since responding to the call, police are continuing their search for Serdarevich, concentrating heavily on the city’s north end and using a helicopter to assist in their search. On Tuesday, the area around 1643 Kathryn Avenue was shut down and area residents were evacuated for most of the night as police and a private chemical disposal company worked through the night to dispose of the contaminants, including various hazardous chemicals and the radioactive material, most of which was kept in a refrigerator.

The missing woman is described as a 68 year-old Caucasian female, 5?7? tall, weighing about 140 pounds with short, dyed blond hair. According to police, the woman might not be aware of her surroundings and may appear disoriented.

Investigators from the Northeast Intelligence Network have been in contact with a local police source who described the situation as “bizarre.” According to this source, the lab area has been recently utilized, although this source stated that it is “highly unlikely” that either resident have been involved in working at the lab due to their ages and physical conditions. The police source declined to comment on whether the man was suffering from any maladies associated with radiation poisoning or exposure to the chemicals found at that address, although added that it is very likely that the “investigation will expand beyond its current area of focus.”

Investigative reporters with and the Northeast Intelligence Network are continuing their joint investigation.
