Missing 16-year-old teenager: “We just need him to come back,” his mother worries

The mother of a 16-year-old teenager from Montreal’s South Shore who has been missing for several days is very concerned and is trying to find him safe and sound.

“I just want him to know that the whole family loves him, that we are here to help him. He just has to come back,” sighs Melissa Duplantis Ouellette, 36.

On January 24, Loick Charlebois-Bruce was last seen around 7pm in the Saint-Hubert neighborhood of Longueuil. Before leaving, he would have told his father he was suicidal, says Melissa Duplantis Ouellette, which makes him fear for his safety.


“I tried to text him but his phone stays locked. I wrote him that I’m worried and that I love him,” she adds, visibly shaken by the events.

Loick Charlebois-Bruce has been going through a rough patch lately. It’s not the first time the teenager has escaped. However, the last time he was found after two days.

According to his parents, he was seen on the Longueuil metro in the days after his escape. He would be staying with new friends his parents don’t know.

“I have two addresses from a source who knows where he’s hiding, but he’s probably gone already. The parents who live at these addresses say they have never seen Loick,” laments Mélissa Larose.

Taking to social media, the teen’s mother is asking the parents of Loick’s friends to take him home.

“Whatever your principles and your beliefs, know that not only I, his mother or father, but also his brother and his two little sisters suffer from not knowing where he is,” she wrote Friday night on Facebook.
