Parents of a 15-year-old boy who ran away from home say his disappearance was precipitated by an argument over his “obsession” with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Brandon Crisp, of Barrie, Ontario, was last seen on October 13 after his parents cut him off of Call of Duty 4, police sergeant Dave Goodbrand told CTV News. It wasn’t the first time his parents had taken away the game, Goodbrand said, but this time, “he became upset and left home.” Police have been tracking his Xbox Live account, but so far he hasn’t logged on from another location.

Crisp had become “obsessed with the game,” according to Goodbrand. “Over the last couple of years, Brandon has become less involved in sports and extremely involved in Call of Duty 4,” he said. “They have found him waking up in the middle of the night playing it.”

Police planned to conduct a search today of the area where Crisp’s yellow and black mountain bike was discovered abandoned, and have appealed to residents to search their homes and cottages for signs of the teenager, who is described as 5’2″ tall and 100 pounds, with short, sandy blond hair. Anyone with information should contact the Barrie Police Department at (705) 725-7025.
