Kamloops RCMP have taken the driver of a tractor trailer into custody after they received a report that a youth travelling with the person had possibly been sexually assaulted.
The vehicle, travelling from the Lower Mainland en route to Alberta, was located at the weigh scales west of Kamloops and the 15-year-old youth was found in the sleeping quarters of the semi truck.
RCMP are not sure how the youth ended up in the tractor trailer, and the investigation is ongoing.
A 14-year-old girl from Quesnel was reported missing on Monday afternoon and believed to have been trying to go to Calgary. The teen was later reported to have been found near Kamloops, but the RCMP are not saying if these events are related.
