On March 12th, 2016, the Dawson Creek RCMP received a report that two male youths required police assistance while walking along the Alaska Highway near the Kiskatinaw River. Patrols were immediately conducted to locate the youths, but only one of them, Denny Poole, was not found. It was discovered that Poole and his friend had become separated, and Poole continued walking along the Alaska Highway toward Fort St John. Unfortunately, he was last seen walking across the Kiskatinaw River Bridge at around 7:10 pm on March 12th, 2016, and has been missing ever since. Denny Poole was just 15 years old at the time of his disappearance, and he was described as an Aboriginal male who weighed approximately 130 lbs and was between 5’6 and 6’ tall. He had short black hair in the back and long hair in the front. When he went missing, he was wearing a gray hoodie with the letters DC on the front, blue jeans, size 10 men’s Osiris high-top shoes that were purple, green, blue, and black, and a black flat-brimmed hat. The Dawson Creek RCMP and Poole’s family have been tirelessly searching for him for over five years, but unfortunately, they have not been able to find any leads on his whereabouts. They are urging anyone who may have information about Poole’s disappearance to come forward and speak with the authorities. It’s important to remember that Denny Poole is still missing, and his family is still searching for answers. If you have any information about his disappearance, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact the Dawson Creek RCMP immediately.
