Mom of missing Nova Scotia teen pleads for answers: ‘Just tell me where to go find him’

For 10 months now, Theresa Gray has had one focus: finding her son.

Devon Marsman went missing in late February. The Halifax teen turned 17 in October, but instead of sharing presents or a cake, his mother has been scouring the province and the country for him.

“I criss-crossed Nova Scotia. I sent flyers — like laminated posters — (to) all different places: Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver. I mean, the days that I don’t work, I’m searching woods,” she said.

“I shouldn’t have to search. You know, enough already.”

Gray said she’s close with her son, and it’s completely out of character for him to not be in touch.

“He’s a great kid. Always been a good kid,” she said. “There have been times he’s been out and stayed out a few nights with friends, but nothing crazy. Never been in trouble.”

She said she last saw Marsman on Feb. 27, although it has been reported he was last seen on Feb. 21.

For three days, Gray tried calling and texting him — but no reply. She reached out to his friends, but no one had seen him.

“The group of friends that I reached out to were the group of friends I always knew that he hung around with. I didn’t realize Devon actually had two groups of friends,” she said.

She reported him missing at that point.

Friends and family have organized searches, including one in May in the Roach’s Pond area of Spryfield, where Gray believes he may have been.
