Kamloops Mounties are searching for a missing teenager who has autism.

Vell is an Indigenous male, 170 cm tall or roughly 5'6", weighing 59 kg or roughly 130 pounds. He has long black curly hair, brown eyes and wears glasses. He typically wears a brown toque, light brown hoodie and ripped jeans.

Bingley says if you locate Vell, please call 911.
