The following note was shared with neighbors and communities with the hope that this mother can find her son, who went missing on Halloween.
The mother, Pastor Dr. Frances Wattman Rosenau, wrote:
My son Andrew is still missing, and we are devastated. Please share this and look out for Andrew. He has no phone, no ID, and no credit or debit cards on him.
He is wearing a black suede jacket, dark gray dress pants, black dress shoes, and a maroon dress shirt with a gray dress vest.
Andrew just turned 18-years old, three weeks ago. But he is still very much a kid. He goes to Pali High and is a senior.
He does not do drugs or drink and loves his little brother and sister very much. I took this Halloween photo of my three beautiful children less than an hour before he left and I haven’t seen him since.
He asked me to make him this costume so he could go trick-or-treating with his siblings and his dog (which never happened).
He has NEVER done this before. He has NEVER gone out and not come home.
Andrew has a kind a generous heart. He can be really hard on himself and holds a lot inside. He has not had the easiest ride in life, especially recently, and is suffering from depression due to circumstances beyond his control.
He is not dangerous. Just scared. Call the police if you see him or contact me.
Andrew, if you see this, come home. You are my heart. We are not whole without you.
