UPDATE (Jan.17): Kamloops RCMP have reported making contact with the person they believe to be Rosannne Supernault, who advised she and her nephew were safe. She took to Facebook on Wednesday to announce that she and her nephew went into hiding after he confided distressing allegations to her. Until the authorities locate Nikaeo Supernault and confirm he is safe, however, the two are still considered missing by the RCMP.
Police are trying to track down a six-year-old Kamloops boy and his aunt, neither of whom have been in touch with family since last weekend.
Nikaeo Supernault, 6, and his 28-year-old aunt Roseanne Supernault, who was looking after her nephew, last spoke with the boy’s mother on Sunday, police said.
“Kamloops RCMP are requesting Roseanne to make contact with the mother or RCMP to discuss this situation,” RCMP Staff Sgt. Ed Preto said.
Nikaeo is described as standing three-foot-six and weighing about 45 pounds. He has light brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a blue jacket, black pants and tan boots.
Roseanne was last seen wearing a black jacket with white fur on the hood, jeans, black boots with white fur and carrying a light-coloured purse.
She is a Canadian actress known for her role on the T.V. show Blackstone and the film Maina.
Anyone with information about the pair’s whereabouts can call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
