L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

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.)
