Gresham, Ore. -- Gresham Police is asking for the public's assistance in locating a missing 15-year-old boy who was last seen on Monday, March 12. Lucas Cole was last seen leaving Gresham High School at the end of the school day on Monday and was supposed to be walking home to the area of NW 4th street and NW Towle avenue, but he was possibly also seen somewhere on the Springwater Trail on the evening of March 12. Mr. Cole is a white male, approximately 5-feet-9-inches tall and 140 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, maroon sweatpants, black shoes and carrying a green backpack. Mr. Cole is new to the area and normally walks to and from school. He's not known to use TriMet but he would be able to figure out how to use the system. Mr. Cole doesn't take any life-sustaining medications, doesn't have a cell phone and doesn't use social media.

Anyone who knows of Mr. Cole's whereabouts is encouraged to call the non-emergency police dispatch line at 503.823.3333 or if needed, 911.
