Search continues for missing 13-year-old boy
ST. JAMES (AP) - A search continues for a 13-year-old Missouri boy who's been missing since last week.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said Tuesday that Johnathan Shay left his grandmother's home in St. James on June 9. The center said he was last seen wearing a gray t-shirt, blue shorts and black tennis shoes.
The Lake Sun Leader reports the boy left his grandmother's and headed into the woods with a cousin, who was found Friday by officers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol in St. James.
Law enforcement searched the area over the weekend with dogs and helicopters.
The missing boy's mother, Melissa Perkins, said her son, who is autistic, wandered off before. The Phelps County Sheriff's department said the search continued Tuesday.
