Fourteen-year-old Nanaimo District Secondary School student Brevin Charleson has returned home safe and sound, said Moira Page, his mother.

Paige dropped Charleson off at school yesterday morning.

According to the Nanaimo RCMP, Charleson did not attend his classes and when he did not return home last night, they were contacted and a search ensued.

Paige — a teacher at Ladysmith Secondary School — said she’s happy to have her son home.

“The last 24 hours has been awful,” Paige said, but the care and support she’s received from family and friends while her son was missing “has been unbelievable.”
