Winnipeg police are asking for help in finding an 11-year-old boy who was last seen two days ago in Winnipeg’s North End.
Authorities are concerned about his well-being.
Kingsley Meekis was last seen Thursday afternoon in the area near King Edward Community School and William Whyte School, say police.
He is described as:
Thin and between four-foot-nine and five feet tall.
Has dark hair shaved on the sides of his head.
When last seen, he as wearing a grey long-sleeve shirt, grey pants and a black Nike sweater (with red and white lettering).
He could also be wearing a black spring jacket.
Might not want to be found
Police spokesperson Rob Carver said Meekis was last seen at school Thursday and “this isn’t the first time that he stayed out overnight,” but there is reason for concern.
“He’s 11, and it’s Winnipeg and it’s March.”
Police are going in the community today,[tooltip id=”4500c2f113202943ff1ae30d00c9d4ac”] [/tooltip]“passing around pictures and letting people in the community know that we’re looking for this kid and what he looks like,” Carver said.
Police were informed on Thursday that Meekis didn’t come home from school. Carver said he didn’t know why a release wasn’t sent out sooner, but said police do not put out a release without parental consent, and when they decide to take the “step to go public, we try and do it carefully for a lot of reasons.”
Carver added that cases of young people running away can be especially difficult because children sometimes don’t want to be found, but he hopes someone knows where Meekis is and calls police.
“I know myself as an officer,[tooltip id=”4500c2f113202943ff1ae30d00c9d4ac”] [/tooltip][other] kids in the community can be really helpful in locating kids who have gone missing.”
Anyone with information about where Kingsley might be is asked to contact Winnipeg police’s missing persons unit at 204-986-6250.
