ENID — An Enid family is looking for a 17-year-old runaway.
Tristan “Brae” McLemore, 17, was last seen about 1:30 a.m. July 6 at Chester's Billiards and Grill, 2733 NW 50 in Oklahoma City.
The family has started a Facebook page called Finding Brae McLemore in an effort to reach him.
McLemore has a drug history and is in danger of hurting himself, said Joy Baker-Qualls, a Garfield County juvenile officer.
Garfield County issued a “pick up and detain order,” which equates to an arrest warrant for juveniles, she said.
Baker-Qualls said McLemore has a long history in drug court in the juvenile system. He may not want to be found.
“Sometimes they hide out,” Baker-Qualls said. “It's not that anyone's trying to be mean or that he is bad. He needs help. And we want to help him.
“He is a really neat kid and he's from a good family and has a strong support group of people who love him very much,” she said. “He's articulate and intelligent.”
Anonymous tips regarding McLemore's whereabouts can be left at (214) 717-6744, according to a flier provided to the media. He is described as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds.
