Missing Person Search Continues for Camas, WA Teen
The Camas Police Department on Wednesday said it’s no closer in finding a teen reported missing last week, and it thanked community members for tips provided.
Cole Burbank, 16, was last seen on surveillance footage April 13 at Camas High School, said Sgt. Scot Boyles. Burbank drove away from the school in a black 2010 Honda Accord with Washington plates AKW3441.
Police have received reports he was seen at Clark College, where he was likely headed for class, but they haven’t visually confirmed he was at the college despite viewing surveillance footage and talking to witnesses, Boyles said.
“Unfortunately, at this point, none of the tips have given authorities any information as to Cole’s current whereabouts,” Boyles said in a news release.
His school released surveillance footage showing he wore a plaid, long-sleeve shirt, jeans and a baseball hat. He stands 5 feet 10 inches and weighs about 140 pounds, police have said.
Investigators have received helped from the Vancouver Police Department’s Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit, which looked for cellular and online clues, and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Teams, which have searched many square miles of heavily wooded areas nearby.
A Facebook group created by family and friends has been used to help coordinate volunteer efforts and provide links to GoFundMe website to help the family. Anyone who spots the teen is asked to call 911 right away.
