NORTH DURHAM: The father of a missing Port Perry teen David Minor is hopeful that his son will return home, after he went missing nearly six weeks ago.
“It’s been a horrible and stressful situation, and I don’t have the vocabulary to describe it,” Russell Minor told The Standard recently.
He added that his son David recently turned 16, and was last seen on Tuesday, Feb. 17, when David exited a car near University Ave. in Toronto following a meeting with an arbitrator in which Russell was granted custody of David and his older brother.
At the time of his disappearance, David was a Grade 10 student at Port Perry High School, after moving last June with his mother.
David is described as being about 5-foot-10 inches tall, white, with an average or athletic build, brown hair and brown eyes.
“He’s never done anything like this before, and I’m at a loss for where he might be,” added Mr. Minor. “He’s a very good hockey player, really well-regarded as a goalie.”
Mr. Minor has been in contact with police in Durham, as well as Toronto, and praised the efforts of local police, as well as business owners and merchants in Scugog Township.
“The police have been terrific, and the town has been outstanding, and offered a lot of support and everyone has been willing to help in any way they can,” said Mr. Minor.
Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of David Minor is asked to call DRPS Cst. Polmans, at 905-579-1520, ext. 2696.
