Campbell River teen now missing for ten days

WATCH: Seventeen-year-old Jordan Holling was last seen in the early morning hours of Oct. 16 after visiting friends. Dean Stoltz reports. 

It’s been an unbearable week-and-a-half for the family and friends of 17-year-old Jordan Holling of Campbell River.

“Went to his work, talked to his friends, tried to get him on his phone, but he wasn’t on his phone.” said Holling’s father Morgan.

By all accounts it is very unusual for him not to be on social media and to be in touch with his friends and family.

“We have family all over the world and they are all in contact with us and praying and wanting Jordan to come home.” said his grandmother Susan Holling who was one of several family and friends of Jordan who gathered together to talk about him and his disappearance with CHEK News Wednesday.

“It’s just been really weird to like come home from school and him not being there and in general, it’s really a weird thing and I just wish he would come home.” said his brother Ethan.

Jordan was with two friends Sunday night Oct. 15 in an apartment on 16th Avenue. They say everything seemed normal and they just hung out like they always did.

“We were just hanging out having a good time listening to music, watching videos, playing games, it was just as per usual nothing out of the ordinary.” said Sayde Coffill.

“Nothing to signify that he was probably going to disappear, we are all having a good time.” said Raven Baughman.

Jordan left their apartment and was to walk a short distance to his mother’s house, but he never showed up.

His skateboard was found in an area near Highway 19 and 14th avenue, and that’s where searchers focused their efforts on Sunday.

They were back in the Campbellton neighbourhood Wednesday following up on leads and eliminating areas where Jordan could have ended up but so far, there’s no evidence of what happened to him that night.

The community held a candlelight vigil last night and over 200 people showed up to pray for his safe return.

“I’ve been missing Jordan a lot lately, he is somebody I really look up to and it’s been hard for me and I just miss him a lot.” said his sister Brooklyn.

Campbell River RCMP say they continue to receive numerous tips on Holling’s disappearance and are urging anyone who thinks they may have seen him in the early morning hours of Oct. 16 or anytime after that to call them.
