Investigators with the York Regional Police #1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau would like to thank the media and the public for their continued assistance in locating a missing 19-year-old vulnerable man from the Town of Newmarket.   

On Monday Sept. 26, 2022, Darnyle Evans was located in Toronto in good health.

Original Story - Sept. 23, 2022: 

A vulnerable Newmarket teenager has been missing for almost one month and investigators continue to appeal for the public's help in locating him. 

York Regional Police said 19-year-old Darnyle Evans was reported missing Aug. 25. He was last seen in the area of Davis Drive and Prospect Street in Newmarket. 

After almost a month, investigators have exhausted all investigative leads.

"His family and police are concerned for his well-being and safety," police said. 

He is described as a Black male with a thin build, 6 feet tall and 170 pounds. He has black short hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue-and-white sweater with the MTV logo, dark-coloured pants and yellow socks. Police released an image of him in that outfit two weeks ago. 

On Sept. 9, police said that Evans has ties to Toronto, Peel and Halton areas and they believe he could be in the Collingwood area. 

Investigators are now urging anyone with information or who may have seen him over the last few weeks. You can call YRP's District 1 Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-866-876-5423 ext.7141 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online
