The family of Delaine Copenace is asking for the public’s help in finding the missing teen.
“Delaine has never left our home alone, not even a walk to the store,” Copenace’s mother Anida Ross said at a press conference with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection on Tuesday.
“Home is where she wanted to be, with her sisters, with her family.”
Copenace was last seen on Feb. 27 in downtown Kenora, located 211 kilometres east of Winnipeg. She was reported missing the next day.
She was seen wearing black boots, a black jacket, a ‘Bullet for my Valentine’ t-shirt and black jeans with zipped pockets.
Anyone who lives in Kenora and the surrounding areas is asked to check their property and report anything suspicious to police.
“I know that right now she's somewhere. She's terrified. She's wondering when we're going to find her,” Ross said.
Ross is also asking the public to help spread the word through email and social media using #finddelaine.
