Police search for missing teen
A 16-year-old North Vancouver boy hasn't been seen since Friday, and now Mounties are asking for the public's help in locating him.
Semion (known as Simon) Manouvakhov was last seen wearing a grey hooded down jacket and maroon Adidas shoes.
He stands five feet seven inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds, and has short brown hair and green eyes.
Simon left school on Friday, but failed to show up for work afterward.
Police have checked homes where he might have turned, but so far have come up empty.
Simon likes to visit coffee shops in both North Vancouver and Richmond, and so they are asking for the public's help in finding him.
Anyone who sees Simon is asked to immediately call the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311, or simply dial 911.
"We'd like to get him back home," RCMP Cpl. Peter DeVries said. "Hopefully he'll hear this message and get in touch with us or his parents. There are a lot of people who love him and want to be sure he's okay."
