Scottie Dean Morris: Missing Indiana teen could be in ‘extreme danger’, police say

(CNN) Police officers are frantically searching for an Indiana teenager who was last seen Thursday and who is “allegedly in extreme danger,” according to a missing persons alert.

Scottie Dean Morris, 14, was last seen in the small town of Eaton, which is 76 miles northeast of Indianapolis, at 8:30 p.m. Thursday night, according to a missing persons report from the Indiana Clearinghouse for information on missing children and missing vulnerable adults.

The Eaton Indiana Police Department issued a silver alert for Morris on Friday but had been searching for the missing teenager since Thursday night. “He is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical attention,” the Silver Alert statement said.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources used two boats to search for Morris in a nearby river. In addition, the police department deployed two infrared drones to search for Morris from the sky, and Grant County has dispatched two bloodhound teams to search for Morris on the ground, according to a police Facebook post.

More than 100 volunteers worked with Eaton Police on Friday in the search for the teenager.

“There has been tremendous support from the community and we thank each and every one of you who have volunteered during this time!” Police said in a Facebook post.

Police have asked Morris directly on their Facebook page multiple times to get in touch if he sees the social media posts.

“Scottie if you are seeing this please know that we are doing everything we can to get the assistance you need and to make sure you are safe and warm,” the police department wrote on Saturday. “Your safety is our top priority.”

Police say Morris has brown hair and blue eyes and is 5ft 4in tall. He was last seen in a white shirt and red and black shorts.
