Nanaimo RMCP hope the public can help find a missing teen.

Scott Di Vincenzo, 13, went missing from Surrey Saturday.

Nanaimo Mounties caught up to him and another missing youth at the Departure Bay ferry terminal later in the day after police were tipped off they were on a ferry to Nanaimo.

Di Vincenzo was being returned to Surrey by friends, but he ran off again when they stopped at Tim Hortons on Wallace Street.

Police searched extensively for Di Vincenzo, but failed to find him.

Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong, Nanaimo RCMP spokeswoman, said Di Vincenzo was still missing Monday morning.

Di Vincenzo is 5'3", 100 pounds with blue eyes and shaggy blonde hair. He was wearing black skinny jeans, a medium blue hoodie and black high top shoes.

He does not know anyone in Nanaimo and has little money with him.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call 911, Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Nanaimo Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at
