Do you know what happened to Denny Poole?

It's been three years to the day since Denny Poole went missing somewhere along the Alaska Highway between Dawson Creek and Fort St. John.

Poole has been missing since March 12, 2016. He was just about to turn 15, and his disappearance is a deepening mystery.

According to the Missing Kids Alert network, Poole was last seen around 7:30 p.m. on the south side of the Kiskatinaw River Bridge on Highway 97 between Dawson Creek and Fort St John.

"It is possible that Denny may have gotten into a vehicle with someone," a notice reads.

It was previously reported that Poole and a friend had set out on foot for Fort St. John to see a girl they’d met on Facebook. 

About halfway between the two cities, with dusk setting in over the Kiskatinaw, the two boys split up. Nobody knows what happened next.

Sixty volunteer searchers combed the Kiskatinaw River valley weeks after Poole's disappearance but found no trace of him. At one point, family and friends started to raised reward money and sought guidance from a medium.

Poole was wearing a grey DGK sweatshirt, black jeans, Osiris brand skateboarding shoes, and carrying a black backpack when he disappeared.

Anyone with information is asked to call Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700, or the Missing Kids network at 1-866-543-8477.
