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."
