How to help the unidentified teen in Midland

The detective in charge of the case said if you are interested in helping, you can drop items off at the Midland Police Department.

MIDLAND, Texas — After police found an unidentified nonverbal teen in Midland, they have been asking for the public's help to share the picture far and wide in hope of connecting him with family or a caretaker.

Several people have also reached out to see if there are any donations that can be made to the boy.

If you are interested in donating, the Midland Police Department asks for them to be dropped off at its location at 601 N. Loraine St.

Spectrum of Solutions has also provided some suggestions for toys to donate that nonverbal children and adults enjoy.

  • Clothing
    • Shirts-Medium
    • Pants-Medium
  • Sensory toys
    • Fidget spinners
    • Light up toys
    • Popper toys

One other way residents who live around the area of Ward Street and Shandon Avenue can help is by checking for any camera footage that shows the teen. This could give police an idea of other areas he may have traveled in.

That footage can be sent to jalonzo@midlandtexas.gov.

NewsWest 9 will continue to update this story if MPD requests more items for the teen.
