Family and authorities are looking for 15-year-old Joseph Daniel Myers, (referred to as JD) who was reported as a runaway on Sept. 19, 2013 from Hot Springs, S.D.

JD was involved in a custody battle at the time.

He was last seen at his mother's house in Hot Springs, S.D, at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 19. He is 5-feet, 4-nches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He has hazel eyes and brown hair.

JD had been living with his father in Akron, Iowa until his father accepted a new job in Mechanicsville, Maryland. JD also has grandparents in Akron, Iowa.

JD returned to South Dakota with his father on Sept, 18 for a custody hearing at the Pennington County Courthouse in Rapid City.

The judge ordered primary custody to remain with the father and said JD would need to return to Maryland.

Chief Investigator R.A. Dawson said JD and his father argued, and JD threatened to run from Maryland if he had to return. Before JD and his father were to depart for Maryland, JD was allowed to stay the night with his mother in Hot Springs.

He has not been found since.

JD has family in Rapid City, South Dakota, Dickinson, North Dakota, and Akron, Iowa. His parents and grandparents have not had any contact with him, Dawson said.

JD did not have a driver's license or access to a vehicle. He was last seen wearing dark, baggy shorts and a blue and white striped shirt.

Missing from the mother's house are JD's personal belongings and his red Jeff Gordon backpack. Also missing is a Tracfone that JD's mother bought him that had not been activated.

Dawson said he has reason to suspect that JD is in central Nebraska. Anyone with information on the missing teenager is asked to contact Officer Justin Hayne at (605) 890-9991 or Chief Robert Evans at (605) 890-9992 with the Hot Springs Police.
