MEDICINE HAT, AB – The Medicine Hat Police Service is asking for the public’s help to find a 15-year-old boy who has been missing for over a month.

Malcolm Christian Lado was last seen on November 30, 2018, and was reported missing to the Medicine Hat Police Service on December 4.

Attempts to locate Lado have been unsuccessful so far. Police say there is no evidence to suggest foul play.

"In this particular case, there’s some extenuating history with Malcolm, but Malcolm was expected to return sometime throughout the holidays and we still have been unable to locate him," S/Sgt. Ryan Thorburn said. "We’re now working with other police departments in other jurisdictions, trying to find him."

Lado is described as black, stand 6’1” tall, and weighs 161 bs. He has black hair and a slim build.

Police believe Lado could potentially be in the Lethbridge area or Winnipeg.

Anyone with information on Lado’s location is asked to call Medicine Hat Police at 403-529-8481 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
