Police are asking for help finding a missing Belgrade teen.
On July 12, Lane Leo Noakes, 16, was reported as missing by his father who said Lane left his home on July 3 and was supposed to be staying with a friend in Livingston until July 4. Lane did not return home.
A friend of the family reported possibly seeing the teen at Rainbow Family Gathering in Jackson, Montana, several days later. Lane has not been in contact with his family since.
A man called Gallatin County dispatch today, claiming to have seen Lane at a convenience store in Washington State. The caller hung up before dispatchers could get a location or return phone number.
Lane is described as a Caucasian male with medium length hair and brown eyes. He is 5′ 10″ tall and weighs approximately 210 pounds. He has piercings in both ears and in his bottom lip. He has scars on his forearms and is believed to be wearing jeans, a T-shirt, a red or black hooded sweatshirt and possibly a headband.
The Belgrade Police Department is seeking information from anyone who may know Lane's whereabouts. He has been entered as a missing person and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has been notified.
Persons with information are asked to call local law enforcement or the Belgrade Police Department at 406-388-4262. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children can be reached at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or www.missingkids.com.
