RCMP in New Brunswick are asking for the public's help in locating a 15-year-old boy who disappeared from a youth residence in Moncton Tuesday.

James (Jamie) Hannah was reported missing after he left the residence. Initially he was in touch with friends and family, but no one has told police if they've heard from him since Wednesday.

Police say they're concerned about his whereabouts because of his young age and the time of year.

Hannah is described as slender, measuring about five feet 11 inches and weighs approximately 140 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes. When he left the residence, he was wearing blue jeans and a purple and yellow hoodie.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Hannah is asked to contact Codiac Regional RCMP at 506-857-2400.
