Update: West Kelowna teen located by Mounties

Police announced Friday that Daniel Schmidt was located.

"As a result of media attention in this case, the Kelowna RCMP is pleased to confirm that the 17-year-old boy reported missing has been located, and he is safe and sound," said Const. Kris Clark, in a press release.

"Thanks to the media and public for your assistance."


Police continue to search a West Kelowna teen who was reported missing over a month ago.

The West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a missing teen from a residence on the 3600 block of McIver Road West, Nov. 11 at 8:50 a.m.

Daniel Schmidt, 17, apparently left his home at around 10 am the previous day with no known destination, said Const. Kris Clark in a press release.

"It appears that Schmidt is actively avoiding contact with his family but has been active on social media. He has recently changed his appearance by shaving his head and has apparently been spotted in the McDonald's Restaurant located at the intersection of Highway 33 and Hollywood Road," he said.

"Police simply need to confirm that Schmidt is safe."

Schmidt is described as:

  • Caucasian
  • 6-feet tall and 140 lbs with a slim build
  • Shaved head, or very short black hair, and brown eyes

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Daniel SCHMIDT is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP 250-768-2880.
