Jason is 17, from Des Moines, and might be in our area, so family and friends have asked that we publish this notice:

Age: 17
Sex: Male
Race: Caucasian
Hair: Blond
Height: 5’08”
Missing From: Des Moines, WA

(He) has been reported missing by his family. He suffers from schizophrenia, depression and anxiety. Jason is deaf, but has cochlear implants, which have stopped working by now. He can speak normally and use American Sign Language.

Jason left his home on 07/19/2021 at about (2 pm). He did not say where he was going. He has left in the past, but never for this long. He has not taken his medication and is likely beginning to suffer from it. His hair is currently cut into a “Mohawk” and he was last seen wearing “cut-up” black jeans.

Jason has been known to go to Seattle and use public transit. He does not have a cell phone or any money/debit cards with him.

If you know where he is or have other information, call Des Moines Police at 206-878-3301.

    Any updates on finding Jason? I don’t see an Amber Alert out for him. Please update us.

    • WSB July 25, 2021 (11:31 am)

      Amber Alerts are restricted to very specific circumstances.

      • JR July 25, 2021 (5:00 pm)

        And a missing child isn’t a specific circumstance? I thought that was EXACTLY Amber Alerts were for! How else is the word supposed to get out to the masses?

    My thoughts and prayers to Jason and his family. May the good lord guide him home safely.

    Hi, as a parent I am sorry for the anxiety you must be feeling right now.  I am wondering how recent this photo is.  The reason I ask Friday around 4:00 pm crossing at Alaska Way and Fauntleroy was a young man who had the same eyes as Jason but heavier and no torn black jeans.   Hair same color but pulled into a ponytail, he was exhibiting a lot of extra body movements (jerking in his upper body) I was looking at him and he laughed and spit in the opposite direction.  A woman in the car beside me was watching him too and I saw on her car screen she pulled up this photo.  I hope he is found unharmed.

Sorry, comment time is over.
