Police search for missing 15-year-old NH boy who reportedly ran away from home
DORCHESTER — State police are searching for a 15-year-old boy who has been missing for six days.
Zander Stockwell reportedly ran away from home on Oct. 15. Stockwell has run away from home before, back in April 2014, July 2015 and May 2016, according to Lt. Gary Prince of State Police Troop F.
Fish and Game searched the surrounding wooded areas for the first couple of days after Stockwell went missing.
State Police continued to check the surrounding areas, camps and seasonal houses for Stockwell. He does have some camping equipment and his family believes that he is still in the area in hiding.
He is also believed to have spent a night in a camper, after the owners realized items, such as food, had gone missing, Prince said.
The Division of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) has been involved with Stockwell and his family in the past based on abuse allegations, which were never proven by DCYF, Prince said.
Anyone who has a seasonal home, camp, or trailer in the area is asked to check for signs that Stockwell might be staying there for shelter. Hunters in the area have also been asked by police to keep an eye out for him on some of the snowmobile trails.
Anyone with information about Stockwell's whereabouts can call Troop F at 603-271-1170.
