New Orleans Police Department

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.
