Are they suspecting a runaway or foul play? This is the second teen missing from that area in 2 weeks. Very scary!

I think it's really sad that there is really no other information about him than this post! Even if he did runaway he's only 15 years old he needs to be a priority!!!!

The girl that went missing the other week was found and is home safe. Charges are being brought against a 20 year old girl that was with her at the time she was found. But the only details I have found against him is that he disappeared in the predawn hours saturday morning. Thats it.

When his parents went to wake him Sat morning he was gone and the bedroom window was open. Disappeared sometime between 2am - 9am. No one knows if he is with someone or what, as there are no leads that they're aware of at this time.

15 year olds leave home all the time. We all know people with stories like this. I am not too worried about a 6ft 1in. 200lb kid who left his home. I reckon he will come home when he is ready. I reckon his family is scared though but not nearly as much to be scared of as when the girl went missing a few weeks ago.

It doesn't matter what the age, sex or size of a missing person. When it's your own child, it's scary until they are found.

Prays for this family.

I cannot believe that you actually said that!!
Imagine if this was your child or another close family member. I'm sure if you were in this situation you wouldn't be so cold and callous with your words and you certainly would not appreciate someone saying to your family what you've said to theirs.

Prayers continue for Austin and his Family.

This family is very dear to me. I have talked to them everyday. Still no leads or nothing. He is so sweet, always smiling. We just never thought something like this would happen to him. No one needs to get on here and bash him or the family. Pray!! Prayer works!! I love them all, they are my family! Please pray

We will continue to pray! Erika Wilson (Justin Gaines mom mentioned in my above post) has tried to get up with the family. Since her son has been missing, she has started a organization (non profit) full of resources. It includes all the things she did not know about when her son went missing. I do not want to ppost her number here, but you can contact her at www.justingaines.com I am sure you have noticed there is less publicity and concern when it is a male vs a female. She knows first hand a lot of information to help with the cost and getting the name out to find a child. I know she has contacted the family; I do not know if they called back. Knowing Erika when Justin first went missing, it was impossible for her to remember to call anybody back and that is understandable. If you talk to the family mention to them, she can not promise to find their baby, but she can help with all the cost of marketing their child, media, search group, PI's, ect.... It is a team that does it and every one of them had to learn to do it when Justin went missing.
I hope you find this young man! My household is praying.

Betsy, thank you for posting that information.
The post from ohwell proves that more attention is given to a missing female, and that's sad. The focus on a person being male or female shouldn't even be a factor when someone is missing. Neither should their size or physical capabilities.
Cuz, know that many are praying for Austin's safe return and for God's comfort and strength to carry the family through this ordeal.
