17-Year-Old Juvenile Missing NR14135ne

West Valley:  The family of Azure Rosas and the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Valley Division is asking for the public’s help to locate Azure, a resident of Reseda.

On April 4, 2014, around 7:30a.m., Azure was last seen by his mother when she dropped him off at Reseda High School located in the 18200 block of Kittridge Street in the city of Reseda.  Azure has not been seen or heard from since; his family is very concerned because he did not take his medication on this day and is in need of it.

Azure’s mother fears her son might be heading to Miami, Florida.  Azure established a relationship, via the internet, with an adult in Florida.

Azure Rosas is described as a 17-year-old male White with brown hair, brown eyes, stands 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 135 pounds.  He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information on Azure Rosas whereabouts is asked to contact West Valley Area Watch Commander at (818) 374-7611.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
