Friends of missing St.Catharines teen Quintin Bingley say his disappearance is surreal and scary

Surreal and scary.

That's how a childhood friend of missing St.Catharines teen Quintin Bingley is describing his disappearance.

Chloe Leblanc has known 18 year old Quintin since they attended kindergarten at Port Weller Public School.

She says he was a class clown, always making people smile and laugh.

Leblanc says she lived on the same street as Quintin's grandmother who recently passed away.

Quintin's mother, Sandra will join us at 5:15pm.

Leblanc says Quintin and his family was always very nice and even delivered casseroles to her when her mom passed away.

Leblanc says she wasn't close to Quintin over the last few years since he attended Simcoe High School and she attends Laura Secord.

She is hoping Quintin, who has not been seen since getting dropped off by friends at his home in the area of Pearce and Parnell on the evening of Friday May 25th will be found soon.

Leblanc says she has no idea what happened to her friend and she's asking all residents to share posters of her friend online and in person.

She thinks it's weird that his cellphone and his wallet were found inside his home.

Leblanc says police have been scouring the neighbourhood on foot, in the water, and even canvassing the area by drone.

She wants people to know that Quintin was loved by everyone and she doesn't think anyone would want to hurt him.

Quintin's family has hired a private investigator to help with the search.

A Gofund me page has been set up to help cover the costs of the search. Click here to see it.

Quintin was set to graduate from Governor Simcoe Secondary School and was looking forward to attending York University in the fall to study Computer Science.
