Yakima teen missing for a week; family offering a $1,000 reward to find him

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The family of a missing teenage boy is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads them to him.

Jonathan "Jack" Roberts, 15, was last seen a week ago on Apr. 9 near Franklin Park in Yakima. He is currently without important medication, which could be "detrimental to his wellbeing and safety," according to the Yakima Police Department. 

His mother, Darcie, said about 30 volunteers spent hours distributing flyers with Jack's face on them throughout the city and parts of the Yakima Valley on Tuesday in an effort to track him down. 

"[My husband] and I are beyond grateful for the support that this community has given us. We have a lot of faith that Jack will come home. He knows he's loved, we know he loves us and we really appreciate the support," Darcie said. 

Jack is 5-foot-9 and weighs about 175 pounds. 

Anyone who knows where to find him is asked to call 911 immediately. You can also report information to the Yakima Police Department by calling 509-575-6200.
