He's under 18

how about billing his parents for the costs associated with the search?

Can'nt pay -- put him to work once school is out picking up trash; cutting grass and so forth.


Missing - maybe. Or just holed up somewhere with a "lady" or a gang buddy

Is he missing or wanted?

WPD posted a tweet saying "Police are looking for [him]". Every other Missing persons tweet was an actual missing persons alert. This makes a huge difference in identifying whether he IS dangerous or possibly IN danger.

Very Confusing

The whole thing is very confusing and the only thing that seems clear so far is that every idiot out there is blaming the cops for this kid being missing. The family waited over two weeks to report the fact that he was missing. Many of his "friends" of Facebook have had nothing but trash to talk about the police. They even turn this into something racial...BUT THEN...there are many of them telling everyone to just leave it alone because he is fine.

If they know he is fine then please stop hammering the police over this and stop turning it racial. The cops can't investigate something they don't have reported to them. The same people who are blaming this on race and the police are the same people saying that this kid is fine.
