    The search continued Tuesday for a 14-year-old Ottawa boy who went missing four days earlier.
    Ottawa police confirmed Tuesday morning that Justin Rutter has still not been found, despite a massive search by his family Monday.
    Justin parted ways with a friend at 10 p.m. Thursday on Côté Street near St. Laurent Boulevard after leaving his home in Lowertown in the afternoon, said an Ottawa police news release.
    He had told the friend he didn't want to go home and wanted to stay out late or all night, the release said.
    "While there are indicators that would suggest it's a runaway, we just don't go on that premise," said Ottawa police Sgt. Mark Houldsworth.
    On Monday, Justin's family organized a massive search in Lowertown, Vanier, the Byward Market, and along St. Laurent Boulevard in an effort to find him. Around 75 people took part, putting up posters with his photo and description along the street. They have also posted the information online.
    His mother, Jaye Rutter, said he had never spent a night away from home before.

    A missing Ottawa teen may have been spotted at a pizza joint on McArthur Avenue on Sunday night, according to police.
    The teen's family says a video has also surfaced, which might show 14-year-old Justin Rutter being beaten up.
    "It's the toughest thing I know I'm ever going to go through," said Preston MacLaren, whose son has been missing for six days.
    "I haven't stopped crying. My wife's having pains, some serious pain only a mother can have."
    MacLaren's teenaged son hasn't returned to his Lowertown home since going out with friends on Thursday. He apparently told his friend he wanted to stay out late, possibly all night, according to police.

    Hundreds of volunteers are helping to look for Justin. Facebook sizzles with information and ideas, police are chasing down leads rapidly, and much of the city has been covered in posters of his face. Family and friends have been working around the clock, because they just don’t know what’s happened.

    "Confirmed Sighting of Missing Ottawa Teen

    Daniel Proussalidis
    Friday, October 16, 2009

    Ottawa Police have one confirmed sighting of missing 14-year-old Justin Rutter in the Vanier area.

    They have not given a specific location for that, though.

    On Wednesday night, Justin spoke to friends stressing that he did not want to return home.

    The teenager was wearing a white hooded coat or sweat-shirt at the time.

    Justin was reported missing on Thursday of last week after he did not return home from an outing with a friend."

    "That information was passed on to police, who feel confident enough to confirm that the boy was seen. It’s believed Justin has also told other friends he does not want to go home.

    The sighting appears to confirm a police theory that Justin, missing since Oct. 8, has run away, but police say their investigation is not complete."

    OTTAWA — The grandmother of a 14-year-old boy missing for 10 days expressed relief Friday when police confirmed that Justin Rutter is safe and sound, but refuses to return home.
    “Obviously, there’s a reason he doesn’t want to go home,” said Diane Veilleux, 59. “The important thing is that the police find him and that he gets the help he needs.”
    Ottawa police say Justin was seen in Vanier on Wednesday evening. He was in good health and, during a brief conversation with a friend, stressed that he did not want to return home, police said.
    That information was passed on to police, who feel confident enough to confirm that the boy was seen. It’s believed Justin has also told other friends he does not want to go home.
    The sighting appears to support a police theory that Justin, missing since Oct. 8, has run away, but they say their investigation is not complete.

    I hope they get this problem resolved soon, I would hate to see him become another kid living off the streets.

    Does Canada have a system like the National Runaway Switchboard? Here in the US, a teen could call 1-800-RUNAWAY, and the people would talk to him and help him figure out what to do. Their main goal is to keep kids safe and off the streets. They could even call his parents and set up a 3-way conversation and mediate it, in order to find out why he doesn't want to go home, and maybe help fix that.
