On Thursday, after a flight from Edmonton to Vancouver, Ethan Burnett was seen on surveillance walking away from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) instead of boarding his connecting flight to Fort St. John.
He hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Teena Burnett and her son Ethan moved from West Kelowna to Hudson’s Hope, a town of 1,100 east of Fort St. John, a few months ago.
“He was getting in with the wrong crowd,” Burnett said.
With family in Hudson’s Hope, Ethan’s mom believes the northeastern B.C. town is a better place for him.
Because of his connections in West Kelowna, Burnett believes he has hitchhiked back to the Okanagan to see them.
