Teen remains missing

The search for missing 15 year old JordanWabasse has a new twist.  City police are asking people in the area of Holt Place and Mary Street to look in their sheds, garages and anyplace someone could take shelter.  Wabasse was last seen on Monday evening getting off a transit bus in that area.  Police say they have interviewed a person who was on the bus at the time but that person didn't provide any new information. They say that although he was last seen Monday evening, he wasn't reported missing until Tuesday evening.   Wabasse is from the  Webequie First Nation.  He has been here since September attending school.  He was living at a boarding house on Holt Place.  The boy's family has travelled here and are working with police. The Nishnawbe Aski Nation is also providing assistance.
