[UPDATE: Messaged Mother] 15-Year-Old Eureka Boy Missing Since Thursday
15-year-old Luke Matthew Paz of Eureka has been missing since Thursday afternoon. He was last seen about 3:10 after leaving Pacific View Charter School apparently on his way to his bus stop on Myrtle Avenue.
His mother said she received a text on Friday purporting to be from him saying he was in Blue Lake.
Luke is 5’3″ and weighs approximately 100 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing tan pants and a white shirt and carrying a green backpack.
Luke may be with his girlfriend, said his mother but she doesn’t know that and she is very worried. Anyone with any knowledge of where he is, please contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or call his mother at (530) 305-5670.
UPDATE: Luke’s mother tells us that he contacted her this morning via Facebook to say that he is safe with friends.
