    OK, his family last saw him at school at 10:00 AM. Why was family (Mom/Dad??) at school at that time of day? I don't know how the Canadian school system works - could have been a middle school graduation? - was he in trouble at school? What happened after that? Who LAST saw him and what was he doing? There's just not enough information to work with.

    Unfortunately, A LOT of people are NOT listed on their city, state, or governments websites as missing..... it is an "oversite" or they do not fit the "criteria".... I will not get into it on here, however, you can PM me and I will explain.

    Worried about Luke

    This is further to the story about the 14-year-old boy who has gone missing in our city.

    We know Luke Degerness through Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Over the past few years we haven't seen him much, but he did call us to let us know he was living back here. We lost his contact information but want him to know that we care for him very much and would love to hear from him again.

    Our family is very concerned about Luke and want everyone in Prince George to be looking for him. It's been almost two weeks since he left his home and it seems like there isn't a lot of people aware that there is a missing teenager.

    We need the media to help us out to get even more people involved and to understand that when they see him they need to contact his family or the police, and not to keep him hidden. The quicker he can get back with people who care about him, the better.

    We want Luke to know that there are lots of people who care about him and we need him to let us know that he is OK.

    If anyone knows where Luke is and don't want to call the police themselves, they can call Wayne or Kerry at 562-0619 or Viv at 961-9965.

    I'm glad you found something about Luke and posted it here, findlorne, because I have not been able to find anything about him. It's not just that he's not on Canada's website, it's that I've found nothing. If you find anything else, please post again

    Ginajade, I am so sorry to read this. I pray your Luke is found safe.

    Did he go missing from the school? Did anyone see him leave?

    ginajade - my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. Have the police interview any of his classmates to ask whether or not they saw anything?

    Thank you all for all good wishes. Yes, he had been skipping out of school so we were meeting about that and during the meeting, we sent him to class and went to see if he made it to class, but he never showed up and I have had no contact, or reliable info since he has disappeared. I stumbled on these posting so I have joined and welcome all prayers and help offered, again thank you all.

    Ginajade, I am sorry to hear that your son is missing. Prayers that he is found safe and sound and soon.
    Do you know if he belongs to a networking group like facebook or myspace? Have you had any luck tracing his activities via a cell phone or bankcard?

    Gina,

    I'm so glad you posted and let us know that Luke is still missing. He's a handsome boy, btw! I hope you push to get him listed on every missing persons database in Canada that you possibly can. The more publicity, the better.

    Hoppy

    I could see him running away for a time to because of the school situation and him not wanting to deal with it but that's a long time to stay gone for a boy of his age. What about his friends? Have there been any rumors of seeing him around? Do you think that he knew anyone whose parents would harbor him? Do you think that drugs could be involved and he may be in a gang or on the street?

    Please don't be offended by my questions. I'm only trying to get your thoughts on what you feel might have happened. I have 3 boys and one of them seems to have been in trouble since the day he was born. It was scary to see the influence, good and bad, that the group of kids that he was friends with had over him.

    thanks to all, if LUKE is online, he must be using a diff. name, i can't find him or get anyone to admit they talk to him online. TY hoppy i am trying to get him on the our missing children site now and anywhere else. I am gettin no info from his friends, the rumour going around is that he is on McIntyre cres. in Prince George, but we did a door to door search with posters and althought everyone was aware of him there were no sightings of him in that area. i do think there is an adult who is aware of this situation who could be harboring him and if so is USING MY SON. we need to get him home where he is safe and LOVED. we moved recently from edmonton so there is a chance he is there but again no one has seen him. the last "reliable" sighting we had of him was in mid july. lymom3, i am not offended nor naive, so there is always the possibility of drugs/gangs, unfortunately that is the environment that is prevalent these days (thanks modern media). My prayers to you and your family and to all whom are here. thanks, all.
