Search for missing Midlakes grad studying in France continues: Website launched to help find him

The search is continuing for a missing St. John Fisher student from Ontario County.

Kenneth Deland, age 22, is a 2019 Midlakes High School graduate. He’s been missing since November 27th in France.

“On November 27th we last heard from Kenny via Whatsapp,” the family wrote on a website dedicated to locating the missing college student. “Then apparently he left his host family’s residence and boarded the train headed for Valence, France.”

Family members say his phone was pinged on November 30th but no communication has happened since three days earlier. His bank was notified and they allowed tracking of his purchases by police.


A purchase at a store on December 3rd in Montelimar for $8.40 was made through his bank account. His international studies end December 17th and his VISA expires on January 20th, 2023.

He’s approximately 6′ tall and 190 lbs. He was last seen wearing a red jacket, scarf, grey beanie, blue jeans, a backpack, and sneakers.
