Langley RCMP are thanking the media and public for their assistance in locating missing 14-year-old Tyson Lowe.
Police reported on Tuesday morning that he was missing and asked for public assistance. As a result, an astute member of the public contacted the Langley RCMP regarding a suspicious youth in her neighbourhood. The description provided was a close match to that of the missing youth.
General Duty officers responded and with the assistance of the caller were able to locate the youth a short distance away. Moments later, officers were able to confirm that it was in fact Tyson Lowe, the  missing 14-year-old. This brought the matter to a successful conclusion.
He had gone missing after being dropped off by his mom at Langley Secondary School on Monday morning. Lower Mainland Police Dog Services attended, however a track could not be established due to the high volume of foot traffic. Officers interviewed all of the youths’ known friends and associates and canvassed businesses he was known to frequent.
Fraser Valley Search and Rescue was called out and were en route to Langley area when the member of the public contacted Langley RCMP.

"This is an example of how a community can come together to assist one another. Once again, the Langley RCMP would like to thank the media and the public for the part they played in locating this young man," said Const. Craig Van Herk in a press release..
