Missing teen posts message on Facebook
Still listed as missing, but police are investigating
Missing Sudbury teen Zack Bigras posted a message to Facebook on July 29.
The 14-year-old was reported to have gone missing from his Wahnipitae home on July 24 sometime after 2 p.m. Police believed he was staying somewhere in Sudbury.
On Sunday, he wrote, “kk for every one thats worried im safe and this is my choice and im at a friends so come down im never going back to froster care ok thanks u for being worried but im safe love u guys bye [sic].”
Dozens of messages from friends expressing relief followed his posting. Dozens more preceded it, with entreaties from loved ones to communicate that he was safe.
Const. Meghan O’Malley with the Greater Sudbury Police Service said that the criminal investigations division is aware of the Facebook post, but Bigras will continue to be listed as missing until he either goes home or contacts the police or a guardian.
Like the many people who posted to the teen’s Facebook page, police are encouraging him to make contact.
“At least we know he’s safe, but at this point, he’s still missing,” O’Mally said. “He needs to go back to his residence.”
