A 14 year old Balfour youth is missing. Sheldon Hicks reportedly left home Wednesday with a note saying he was headed to Vancouver with a friend where a job was lined up.
Hicks looks older than 14, he stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 145 pounds with shaggy blonde hair and blue eyes. He may be wearing blue jeans, a black cap, black shoes and a backpack.
The youth reportedly took his mother’s vehicle without consent, but it’s since been found at the Safeway parking lot in Nelson. He has not been seen or heard from since Tuesday night.
