NOPD Asking for Public's Help in Finding Missing 15-Year-Old

Feb 5, 2013

The New Orleans Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding a 15-year-old boy who is missing from New Orleans East.

Carlton Morris, Jr. last spoke with his mother around 7 p.m. Tuesday night, police say. Morris, who suffers from schizophrenic disorders and is in need of his medication, contacted his mother to tell her he didn't have a ride home from school. When his mother told him that she wasn't able to pick him up he became angry and hung up the phone.

His mother has been unable to contact him since.

Anyone with information on Morris' whereabouts is asked to call (504) 821-2222.
