‘Just completely heartbroken’: Dylan Ehler’s parents remain hopeful boy will be found


The parents of a toddler who has been missing for more than a week say they are heartbroken, but still holding onto hope that the boy will be found.

“It feels like day one over and over and over and over,” said Dylan Ehler’s father, Jason Ehler, in an exclusive interview with CTV News.

“I just want him to come home.”

Dylan was with his grandmother in her yard on Elizabeth Street in Truro, N.S., the afternoon of May 6. The woman became distracted for a moment and, when she turned back around, the three-year-old boy was gone. He was reported missing a short time later.

Dylan’s parents say he is energetic — and fast. They recall how excited he was when he received a new bicycle for his birthday last month.

“I remember that day so well. He was off that bike and then into another person’s yard on their real motorbike,” said Jason Ehler. “Just in, like, four seconds. He was that fast, non-stop. He was a very, very happy child.”

An extensive search was launched for Dylan the day he disappeared, with crews scouring the ground and waterways near the grandmother’s home.
