WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The mother of a Wilmington teen missing for two weeks has come to town looking for help finding him.
Al'Quon Flowers, 18, went missing July 18, and family and friends say they still have no idea where he is or if he is even alive.
Keesha Haywood lives in Georgia but came to Wilmington to help look for her missing son. Family and friends handed out fliers at 10th and Rankin Streets, where they say Flowers spent a lot of his time.
Flowers's cell phone was last used in Navassa.
Haywood says the family believes opposing gang members kidnapped Flowers because of past events his family was involved with. She asks for any information that could help find her son.
"We just want him to come back home safe and alive sooner than later," she said. "I mean we don't care. You can drop him off in a field or wherever. We don't have to know who you are. Just bring him back alive."
Flowers is about 5'7" tall and weighs 145 pounds. He also has three tattoos: one on his chest and two more on his hands.
If you have any information about Flowers, call Wilmington Police at (910) 343-3600 or the CUE Center for Missing Persons at (910) 232-1687.
