The FB page mentions that some of Mitchell's things were found in a particular area...and that has been the focus of the search. I couldn't figure out what items were found but the page mentioned that there had been divers so I'm assuming it was near some water.
Praying for Mitchell and his family!
Here is a pic of Mitchell Somerville, hope it works.

Thanks for posting Nt, I hope those monsters did not find Mitchell.
Mitchell's backpack with some school supplies were found near Frenchman's bay in Pickering which is the neighbouring town of Ajax. He was in Whitby, another neighbouring town, at the Macdonalds trying to get a ride to a party.
Hope he is found soon.
Thanks so much for posting this information here... I was a daily reader of this site during the Victoria Stafford missing case and then the trial... With Mitchell missing from so close to where we live, I came on here to see if there was any information on him...
I did hear from initial reports of him missing, that he has gone missing before, but never for this length of time... This is very concerning... Also, another report I read (I believe on the FB group) said that he tried to get on a bus in Whitby or Oshawa to return to the Pickering area, but the bus driver didn't let him on, there were some comments on FB that maybe he didn't have the whole $3 fare for the bus, so the driver may have turned him away... It could be possible that he then tried to hitch a ride... SO Scary.
I will update as I hear anything else on this case.
Thanks and prayers for Mitchell.
Also, the biggest mystery right now that may assist in solving or helping locate him, is if he actuvally made it to the party in Pickering. there seem to be conflicting reports on if he was actually there or not.
Message to all teens in the towns of Ajax & Pickering is to confirm if Mitchell was at the party in the Oklahoma & Breezy area on Friday Sept 21.
I've been putting together a timeline of reports on Mitchell's whereabouts since his disappearence and I am including where I got the information;
friday Sept 21
skips 4th period of school - FB page
seen outside of his school, after school - FB page
3:30pm get on Bus in Ajax at McLeans Comm Ctr - FB page
8pm to 9:30pm (approx) is in Whitby with girls he met on FB - confirmed by parent of girls
10pm - seen on McDonalds video in Whitby - FB page
9:45pm - Bus driver in Whitby doesn't let him on bus - FB page
??:??pm - a female posted on FB page that she gave him a ride from Whitby SHore (south end of Whitby) to I believe Pickering... I can not locate post now, it may have been removed for varying reasons.
Sat Sept 22
12:00am - poster on FB advises he picked up Mitchell who was pretty messed up (drunk?) and looking for food, he says he spent 3-4hours with Mitchell. This poster also said he had met with detectives and took them to the location he dropped of Mitchell at.
4:00am - poster on FB advises he dropped Mitchell off at his school near his home in Ajax, but that Mitchell didn't want to be dropped off at his house, only at the school
Also, sometime over the weekend, Mitchells belongings were found in a park in the Pickering area (near Lake Ontario) - but I have NOT seen any posts, news reports, etc that confirm Mitchell was actually in this area - as yet.
I wish I could do a map of this, it's quite the distances travelled in one night for a young man without a car of his own or money for buses.

I am hoping the family engages a medium to try to locate him.
Have to remember that just because he played sports, was part of a team etc doesn't mean he couldn't have been deteriorating mentally for some time.
Either way I hope he is found.
Whilst being on Websleuths makes me more aware of what evil there is in the world, it also reminds me that the best people are among us as well.
Love you all!
Mitch Somerville's backpack was discovered on Saturday (22nd) in Bruce Hanscombe Park (west side of Frenchman's Bay -- Lake Ontario) in south Pickering ... which is 7+ kilometers from Pickering High School where he was supposedly dropped off at 4am Saturday morning per Facebook poster.
Toronto Sun article from this evening:
Also Find Mitchell Somerville FB page post says that Mitch has never gone missing before...
He has gone missing before, but not for such an extended period, say police.
RIP Tim. Justice will prevail
Victoria is the Latin word for 'victory' or 'conquer'. RIP sweet Tori.

This article might help with putting together a timeline.
His school bag was found by the waterfront.
Dad sees him walking home from school on Friday. Doesn't say what time.The 17-year-old was last seen Sept. 21 and his school bag was found the next day in Bruce Hanscombe Park, on the Pickering waterfront, leaving his parents and two siblings to fear the worst.
Friday night he goes to Whitby to meet two girls. One he met online.The missing teen’s dad spotted his son walking home from Pickering High School with a friend as he drove home last Friday.
“That’s the last time I saw my son,” Joseph Somerville said.
Durham Regional Police have determined Mitch went to Whitby Friday night to meet two girls, one of whom he had met online.
He was seen on video alone at McDonald's at 10 pm and he texted his dad at about the same time telling dad he'd be home soon.
LE checked his phone records and it appears he texted his friends after his text to dad. He told one friend he missed the bus and told another he was going to a party.The boy was seen on surveillance video alone at a McDonald’s on Taunton Rd., west of Garden St., around 10 p.m.
Joseph said his son texted him around that same time.
He said investigators checked his son’s phone records and learned he texted friends afterwards.
Mitch told one friend he had missed his bus and needed a ride, Joseph said. And he told another he was heading to a party.
Divers searched water twice still no sign of Mitchell.

Mitch's FB page - over 2000 "friends".

His fb page says he is from Ohio and lives in Hamilton. The high school isn't even the same one he goes to.
Did they just recently move to Ajax/Pickering?

The last confirmed sighting was over a week ago, he hasn’t been home, to school or baseball practice and was last seen wearing shorts and may — per a FB post by an acquaintance — have been “messed up” (emotionally distraught, drunk, high?) in the early morning hours of Saturday, September 22nd. And it was quite rainy and chilly last Friday/Saturday…

I saw this too n/t. I wonder what is going on with that?
Admin @ http://www.facebook.com/FindMitchellSomerville says Mitch has always lived in Ajax, Ontario, Canada. Apparently (per FMS FB) tracking dogs were brought in last Sunday (23rd) and there were civilian search meet-ups planned for today, September 29th.
Per MSM links up-thread Mitch’s backpack was found on the west side of Frenchman’s Bay (on 22nd, Saturday afternoon), which is almost completely landlocked (95%), and divers this week found no indication that Mitch was in the bay.
There are so many green spaces, ravines and creeks nearby, a near impossible search task without a beginning point of reference… IMO.
