The Quesnel RCMP is asking for the public’s help in locating Kelly Gerk, who is wanted on two warrants after he left a treatment centre in Logan Lake last week.

Gerk, 20, left the treatment centre on Tuesday, April 21 with two other males and is on the run from police, according to a news release from the Quesnel RCMP.
