Runaway Juvenile from Joplin Missouri

Dawson Howell
On June 4th, The Joplin Police Department took a runaway report on a 16 year old male named Dawson Howell. Dawson Howell is a white male who is 5'09" and weighs approximately 219 lbs. He has brown hair and blue eyes. Later in the evening we received a call from an anonymous person stating that Dawson was in the area of Grand Falls. Our officers checked the area that evening and were not able to locate him. 

We again checked the area this afternoon along with the Joplin Fire Department and Redings Mill Fire Department Search and Rescue. It is unknown whether or not Dawson was ever actually in that area.

Dawson has ran away in the past, but he has not been located as of this time. If anyone has any information about where Dawson Howell might be, please contact the Joplin Police Department at 417-623-3131 Thank you in advance for your assistance.
