ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

RCMP are trying to locate the mother of a 15-year-old Dawson Creek boy who went missing more than a month ago.

Tammy Poole was reported missing last week, Dawson Creek RCMP say, and was last seen April 22 after leaving her home for a walk. RCMP say family are concerned about her well-being, noting she has "some physical disabilities" and requires medical care.  

She is mother to Denny Poole, a 15-year-old who went missing from the side of the Alaska Highway March 12.

Sharla Bruun, a spokesperson for the family, said they are working to find both Tammy and Denny.

"The RCMP have been notified, and we have run up against brick walls at this point," she said. "I think we kind of have a lead and we've given that to the RCMP, so we'll know more today."

A prayer vigil for Denny is scheduled this afternoon in Dawson Creek.

According to police, Tammy Poole is a 41-year-old indigenous woman. She is approximately five feet tall, around 110 pounds, with shoulder-length black and grey hair described as "unkempt."

She was last seen wearing a black fleece, zip-up winter jacket, a black shirt, blue jeans and black sneaker type shoes.

Anyone who sees Tammy is asked to call Dawson Creek RCMP or call 911.
