Niagara Police are still on the hunt for a missing St. Catharines teen, believed to be in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.

Damien Rotchill, 16, was last seen on June 12 at 6 a.m. at his Vine St. home. He was given permission to travel by bus to visit a friend in Kitchener and he got in touch later that day, saying he couldn’t make it back to Niagara.

He has not been heard from since.

All police efforts to find him have been unsuccessful, though they think he is still in the Kitchener-Waterloo area and is known to be on the move.

Rotchill is described as 5-foot-10, 125 pounds with short black hair and a slim build.

The police say his caregivers are concerned for his welfare. Anyone who may have information as to his location is asked to contact detectives at 905-688-4111, option 3, extension 1009590.
