Police say the charred remains found in a burned-out car north of Toronto last week belong to a previously missing Mississauga man and two boys, aged 10 and 4.

Samuel Masih, 36, and his sons were reported missing early last Friday by the children’s mother after they failed to return from a movie.

Hours later, police were called to a car fire in Oro-Medonte Township, near Barrie, Ont., and discovered that the vehicle contained the remains of three people.
