The mother of 15-year-old Frazer Smith-George is asking for the public’s assistance in locating him.
Nenette Smith said her son has been missing since Friday, Sept. 28.
She said Frazer has left home before, but for no more than two days at a time and he always called or reached out to her by phone or social media to let her know that he’s alright.
Smith said she’s very worried as Frazer has been missing a lot longer this time, and has not personally contacted her, although a young girl has contacted her cousin by SnapChat to inform the family that Frazer is okay.
“She didn’t say much more than that, and has not replied to our efforts to contact her again,” she said. “I hope he’s fine. but I haven’t seen or talked to him so I’m not taking this girl’s word that he’s okay.”
Smith said she and family members have been visiting local schools, gathering places and talking to Frazer’s friends in their ongoing efforts to find him.
“We really want him back home with us. If he’s in trouble, we want to help him any we can,” she said.
“Everyone’s really worried about him and I haven’t slept since he went missing.”
Smith-George is First Nations, with brown eyes and reddish-coloured hair that is styled in a Mohawk.
He stands approximately 5-foot-2 and weighs about 100 pounds. He was last seen wearing all black clothing.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Smith-George is asked to call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
