MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Marion County authorities are asking for the public's help in locating a missing teen.

Camron Butler, 16, is from the Riverview Estates, Spring Cottage community of Marion County, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Department officials.

“He was last seen on April 25th, from the information that we have gathered,” said Marion County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Jamie Singley. “We have received numerous tips and inquiries which led us to investigate his whereabouts.”

Singley said the department is handling the case.

“After conducting multiple interviews, we believe he could have gone to Jeff Davis County, but that story has varied a little,” said Singley. “We were told that he didn't take any property, such as a cell phone or wallet.”

Butler was last seen wearing shorts and a t-shirt no shoes, according to Singley.

"During our interviews, no one was able to tell us the color of his shirt, or anything more specific about his outfit.”

Singley added that no family member has had any contact to the department’s knowledge since April 25th.

“In February 2016, we had a similar incident occur where we discovered he (Butler) was trying to leave his residence, on that particular case we exhausted all resources to put that case to rest,” said Singley.

Singley said the department will do the same in this case.

“When dealing with runaway or missing juveniles we take this matter very seriously, we also ask for any assistance in helping us locate this teenager specifically, and for his safe return,” said Singley. “Someone knows something, if it’s a friend or a family member, just call and let us know.”
