Nelson RCMP need help looking for missing youth
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.
