A body found northeast of Barrie, Ont., on Wednesday is believed to be that of 15-year-old Brandon Crisp, who disappeared from his home last month after a dispute with his parents over a video game.
Police are not yet confirming the body is Crisp's, but it was found in the Shanty Bay area where searches have been taking place since Oct. 20.
The teen disappeared on Oct. 13 after arguing with his parents over a favourite Xbox video game, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. They had taken the game away from him because they felt he had become obsessed with it and his many connections in the online gaming community.
The parents urged the police to do more to access records on their son's Xbox and online gaming accounts to try to find the teen.
Officers had been searching cornfields and the bush in the Shanty Bay-area around Barrie where Crisp was last reported seen walking on the Oro-Medonte Rail Trail with his bicycle.
Crisp was sighted twice on the day he disappeared. His bicycle was found on Oct. 20.
So DD, do you think gaming can be potentially dangerous? Where do you draw the line between fun and addiction?
