Guelph Police have team working on 'suspicious' disappearance of Seble Dietrich

A team of Guelph police officers has been assigned to investigate the case of coffee shop owner Seble Dietrich, 39, who has not been heard from since July 10th.

"Nobody has heard from Seble….for some time now," said Det. Manfred Hoyer. "With every passing day it becomes a little more suspicious as to why she hasn’t contacted anybody and…that’s out of character for her."
Dietrich, who also goes by the name of "Mimi", owns a coffee shop called Sidamo Coffee in downtown Guelph. Investigators say she was last seen driving her car, a red 1999 Mercedes SLK and left her home sometime between 12:00 p.m. on July 10th and 6:00 p.m. on July 11, 2014.

Police found her car parked at her coffee shop.

When Dietrich was first reported missing on July 19th, police said she was known to travel between Guelph and Ethiopia. Now that three weeks have passed by since anyone has heard from her, police are growing concerned.

Dietrich’s friend, Beletu Gamachu, 41, said Dietrich was an active member of the Ethiopian community in Guelph and Waterloo Region and was always willing to lend a hand.
