Nelson RCMP are looking for 16-year-old Zachary KNODEL who ran away from home on Tuesday

UPDATED April 19: Further to a story we posted yesterday, Zachary KNODEL was located late last night in the lower mainland. Nelson RCMP thank all those who provided information.


Nelson RCMP are asking anyone who may have seen, or been in contact with, 16-year-old Zachary Knodel to call them.

On Tuesday, April 16 at 10 p.m. Knodel ran away from home.

Knodel is described as age 16,  170 cm (approx. 5’6 to 5’7), 63.5 kilograms (140 pounds / slim), black buzz-cut hair, brown eyes and wearing jeans, a hoody and possibly carrying a backpack.

Nelson RCMP would like to hear from anyone who has seen or been in contact with Knodel — particularly if any motorists in the South Slocan area saw a young boy hitchhiking on Tuesday evening around 10:10 p.m. near the South Slocan junction.

He was last seen at 12 Tribes in South Slocan, B.C.

Knodel had been staying in the care of a friend there and was due to travel to Winnipeg in May to re-unite with his mother.

It is unknown at this time if he was heading east to Winnipeg or not as he has family members in Chilliwack, Dawson Creek, and Kelowna.

Knodel may also be using the last names of DLOUHY or SHEETS.

Contact the Nelson RCMP at 1010 Second Street in Nelson, B.C. or phone: 250-352-2156
