UPDATE (June 27, 1:04 p.m.): Surrey RCMP say three-year-old Brycein has been found safe.
Police in Surrey are again asking the public to help find a three-year-old boy, whom they now believe is with his mother.
Surrey RCMP say Brycein Toane was last seen on June 18 in the 11200 block of 126A Street in Surrey.
In a release, they say given the length of time since Brycein was last seen, police and the Ministry of Children and Family Development are “concerned for Brycein’s well-being.”
Last week, police said they believed the boy was with his mother, Melissa-Sue Seale and father Dallas Toane, who police said at the time “had both since disappeared.”
However, in a release sent late Wednesday afternoon, police said they now believe Brycein is with Seale, who was last seen at around 5 p.m. on June 20. She is described as a 34-year-old Indigenous female, 5’2” tall, 110 lbs, with long brown hair, and brown eyes.
Brycein is described as Metis, about three feet tall, weighing about 35 pounds with shoulder length brown hair and brown eyes. It is not known what he was last seen wearing.
Police provided a photo of Brycein but note he is about one year old in the photo.
