Local RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a youth gone missing from Nelson.

Sheldon Hicks is a 14-year-old Balfour resident who has not been seen since the evening of February 19. RCMP received a call from Hick’s mother the next morning reporting that her son had taken her vehicle without consent.

“A note was left by Sheldon saying that he was going to Vancouver with a roommate and that a job was lined up,” says a release issued by RCMP.

The note also said that his mother’s vehicle could be found at the Nelson Safeway parking lot. While the vehicle was found, Hicks was not.

Hicks is a white male, 5’8” tall weighing 145 lbs. He has blond shaggy hair and blue eyes. The boy was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black ball cap, black sneakers and a backpack.

Anyone having recently seen or with knowledge or information of Hicks whereabouts are asked to please contact Nelson RCMP at 250-352-2156 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Callers to Crime Stoppers remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
