WILLMAR — The Willmar Police Department is asking the public’s help locating 14-year-old Joshua Armando Gomez.

Gomez is described as being 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 130 pounds and was last seen wearing a green zip up hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to please call Willmar Police at 320-235-2244.

At this point, the department has no information to indicate Gomez is in immediate danger nor has any medical conditions that would be of concern.

The teenager’s father previously reported him missing to authorities Saturday and asked that they attempt to locate him but signed and filed a missing person’s report Tuesday afternoon, according to Willmar Police Chief Jim Felt.

"All indications are he is a runaway and doesn’t want to be found," Felt wrote via email, adding that the teenager's family said he has been active on social media.

"(The) family is obviously concerned and WPD has been checking some contacts and residences where he might be but no luck so far," Felt wrote.
