Search continues for missing boy from St. James

ST. JAMES, Mo. (AP) – Authorities in southern Missouri are continuing their search for a 13-year-old boy with autism who’s been missing for more than two weeks.

The Phelps County Sheriff’s Department says Johnathan Shay was with an 11-year-old cousin in his grandmother’s yard in St. James when they disappeared July 9 after making plans to run away. The younger boy was found the next day walking along a creek. St. James is about 100 miles southwest of St. Louis.

Phelps County Sheriff Richard L. Lisenbe said Friday on the department’s Facebook page that members of the department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol are searching the area around Dry Fork Creek. He says crews are searching in vehicles, kayaks and on foot. Searchers have previously used a helicopter, divers, search dogs and night-vision goggles.
