Seventeen-year-old Hunter Young hasn’t been seen since Friday night when he went to bed at around 11:00 p.m. He failed to meet with his family on Saturday morning leading to the alert of his disappearance. A missing persons report has been filed with Boise police, but the young man still hasn’t been located. Could he have run away from home or is something else to blame for his disappearance?
Oddly, his cellphone was recently located in Connell, Washington — several miles from where he was supposed to be. Someone at a Circle K convenience store in the Washington town answered the phone, claiming the ringing alerted them. Upon some investigation there appears to be no proof that Hunter Young entered the Circle K. So how did his phone get there?
This is a pretty strange case that has an eerie feel to it. The discovery of the cellphone and the lack of evidence of him even being near the phone is just plain weird. Hopefully this young man ends up being missing voluntarily and this isn’t a gruesome story in the making.
