Investigators are seeking the public’s help finding an 8-year-old Vancouver boy who’s been missing since June.

On June 17, Vancouver police officers conducted a welfare check on the Vancouver home of Breadson John in connection with a criminal investigation. Since then, officers have tried to contact several of Breadson’s family members to determine if they know of his whereabouts.

To date, police have been unable to locate the boy and family members have provided no information about his whereabouts, according to Vancouver police.

In December, investigators filed charges of custodial interference against Breadson’s grandparents, whom Vancouver police say were the boy’s last known guardians and were persons of interest in the initial criminal investigation.

Investigators say the boy also uses the name Brxsan and speaks English and Chuukese. They say he has ties to or may visit Hawaii, Arizona, Washington and the Truk/Chuuk Islands in the Federated States of Micronesia.

Vancouver police have partnered with the FBI on the investigation.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the FBI’s Seattle Field Office at 206-622-0460 or 1-800-225-5324 or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov. People can also contact Vancouver police Detective James Dewey at 360-487-7446 or james.dewey@cityofvancouver.us.
