David Fortin, Missing Quebec Teen, May Have Been Spotted In Richmond, B.C. Supermarket

MONTREAL - The RCMP says a Quebec teenager who has been missing for three years may have been spotted in British Columbia.

The Mounties say they received a tip that David Fortin was seen playing a guitar in a Richmond supermarket in late January.

Fortin was 14 when he disappeared from the Quebec town of Alma in February 2009.

He left home in the morning to catch his school bus but he never made it.

Quebec provincial police say nothing has come so far of their investigation into the British Columbia tip.
