Nearly 3 weeks later, no word on missing Port Angeles boy

SEATTLE -- Clallam County deputies are asking for help from the public to track down a Port Angeles teen who's been missing for nearly three weeks.

Thirteen year old Joshua Gershon ran away from home on October 3, and his parents haven't heard from him since. At least one person has seen Gershon since his family first reported him missing, but so far police haven't been able to find the boy.

Detectives say Gershon has run away before, but never for such a long long time. His parents say he doesn't have a cell phone or any money.

When the boy was last seen just east of Port Angeles he was wearing blue jeans, a dark blue coat and tennis shoes. He stands about 5 feet tall and weighs 90 pounds. He has short brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information about Gershon's whereabouts should call the sheriff's office at (360) 417-2459. You can also contact his parents at (360) 417-9558 or at (360) 477-2701.
