Missing boy shed his clothes, police say, as search continues
An 11-year-old boy who went missing yesterday afternoon shed his clothes on Caroline Street, near the Colborne Street area, according to Kawartha Lakes Police Service.
Sgt. Deb Hagarty says Draven Graham, who is autistic, has limited verbal skills, a sensory irritation to touch, and likes to hide.
“We recognize everyone wants to help search, but we ask at this time that everyone search their own out buildings,” and review video surveillance if you have any, she says.
It was about 3 pm yesterday when Graham went missing from his Queen Street home.
He is described as 4’10”, slim build, with brown eyes and brown hair. He did not have any shoes on and was carrying a white tablet. At the time, he was wearing a blue t-shirt and dark jogging pants.
He was last observed in Rivera Park at 3:30 pm yesterday.
KLPS, the OPP canine unit both here and from Peterborough, as well as drone and helicopter searches are being conducted.
Expect to see a heavy police presence in the Queen St, Caroline St and Colborne St area as Kawartha Lakes Police continue to search the area with the assistance of the OPP Search & Rescue Team.
