Family members got together to raise funds to find missing Dawson Creek teenager.
Alisha Poole is a heartbroken sister who organized a yard sale so she could pay a reward to whoever finds her 15-year-old brother Denny Poole.
He’s been missing for more than two months – so she’s hoping money will encourage people to help.
“It’s kind of hurting my pride that I have to ask people to buy stuff out of a garage sale, or ask people to donate money for us to be able to come up with a reward that will actually make people think ‘hey there’s actually something in it for me that I should actually maybe come forward.”
She has also set up a GoFundMe page, hoping to raise more through the website.
She says it’s difficult for people to understand how difficult it is to go through something like this.
“I wouldn’t be able to put it into words, emotions that a person would be going through; with my case or my grandmother’s case if their child was missing, like I can’t explain it.”
RCMP say Denny Poole is a First Nations youth described as 5’7″, 120 to 130 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing a grey DGK sweater, black jeans, Osirus running shoes, and carrying a black backpack.
