MARION - Community members continue searching for Levi Schneider, an 18-year old Marion man who has been missing for two weeks.
Levi was last seen Sunday, July 7, at his grandparents' home in Marion.
His father Ray from Great Falls tells us that Levi's grandparents left their house in Marion to run a quick errand, and when they returned, Levi was gone.
No one has been able to reach him on his cell phone, which reportedly went dead several days later.
Family and friends officially filed a missing person's report last week and about 25 Marion residents formed search crews and set out looking for Schneider, or clues that may lead them closer to him, on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old's family tells us he has run away in the past, but never for this long.
"He's loved and we care about him. We really need to talk to him. We just need to know that he's okay. We can work out whatever is going on [with him]- it's no big deal and we can get through it," Ray said.
Ray noted that Levi had recently shaved his head.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Levi is asked to call the Flathead County Sheriff's Department at 406-758-5585; Ray Schneider at 406-231-0134; or their local law enforcement agency.
