Police and theMissing Children's Network have released an age progressed photo of David Fortin, of Alma, Quebec, to commemorate the second anniversary of his disappearance.
A 14 year-old Fortin went missing on February 10, 2009, after leaving home to go to his school bus stop. He did not get onto the bus, nor hashe been seen since.
Despite a vast search conducted by the Sûreté du Québec that included both land and helicopter and processing hundreds of reported sightings of the young teen, police arenocloser to finding him.
Fortin's parents, Caroline Lachance and Éric Fortin, say they are desperate for news of their son.
The Missing Children's Network says public help is often vital in finding people.
"We know pictureswork," says Pina Arcamone, Director General of the Missing Children's Network. "Statistically, one child in five is recovered as a direct result of someone recognizing the child's photo and immediately notifying authorities. We are enlisting the public's assistance in helping put an end to theFortin-Lachance's on-going nightmare."
The organization circulated a newly released age-progressed photograph of the now 16 year-old teen. The picture was produced by the National Missing Children's Services Programof theRCMP.
When he disappeared, David Fortin was 14 years-old, and stood 1.73 meters, or 5' 8" tall. Heweighed 75kg. (165 lbs.)
