Dawson Creek RCMP are again asking for the public’s help in locating a missing 15 year old boy.
Three weeks have passed since Denny Poole was last seen on Highway 97 just over a kilometre south of the Kiskatinaw River Bridge.
Denny and a friend were attempting to walk from Dawson Creek to Fort St John on March 12th, but Denny never arrived at his intended destination nor did he return home. The two teens wandered the highway and backroads for some 20 hours taking what they thought to be short cuts of the back roads but appeared they kept getting turned around and did not make much headway.
The last reported sighting of Denny was around 7:30pm March 12th. Since his disappearance Denny has failed to keep in contact with family which is considered very out of character for him.
Investigators once again are turning to the public to assist them in checking any personal outbuildings or wooded areas in a wide radius from where Denny was last reported being seen. (Approximately 1 km south of the Kiskatinaw River Bridge).
Should you have any information regarding the wanderings of Denny that have not been reported to police or have any information regarding the disappearance of Denny, please call the Dawson Creek RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
Denny is a 15 year old First Nations youth who is described as approximately; 5’7″ tall, weighing between 120-130lbs, short black hair, brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing a grey DGK Sweater (DGK is in red lettering), black jeans, Osirus running shoes, and carrying a black backpack.
