“He was seen through security cameras, leaving the airport heading towards the city,” wrote Teena in a Facebook post on March 22.

Teena and Ethan moved to Hudson’s Hope, outside of Fort St. John, a few months ago after living in West Kelowna. She believed he was trying return to the Okanagan area but hadn’t heard from him or any of his friends about his whereabouts.
