News Release
Vancouver Police working with FBI to locate missing child - 01/23/23

Vancouver, Wash. – On June 17, 2022, Vancouver Police conducted a welfare check to substantiate information related to a criminal investigation and account for the whereabouts and welfare of Breadson John, 8 years of age. Since June 2022, Vancouver Police Detectives have attempted to contact multiple family members to determine if Breadson is with family or is truly missing. To date, the family members that have been contacted have not provided investigators information related to the whereabouts of Breadson and he has not been located. In December 2022, charges of Custodial Interference were filed against Breadson’s Grandparents, who were his last known guardians and persons of interest regarding the initial criminal allegation.  

The Vancouver Police Department has also partnered with the FBI to assist with locating Breadson John. 

Anyone with information concerning Breadson John is asked to contact Vancouver Police Detective James Dewey;; (360) 487-7446 or 9-1-1.
