Lawrencio Hernandez

The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center has issued a plea to help locate a 16-year-old last seen in late June. 

Lawrencio Hernandez, of Brainerd, was last seen in Litchfield, Minnesota on June 27. He's described as 6'1'', 160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo on the inside of his right forearm and may have been wearing red shoes. 

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is encouraged to contact Brainerd Police Department at 218-829-2805. 

Last week, the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center asked the public to help keep an eye out for a St. Cloud teen, who, like Hernandez, was last seen June 27 in Litchfield. 

Jayden Anderson, 16, is described as having brown hair with blue eyes at 5’11’’ and weighing around 150 to 160 pounds. He also has pierced ears and a tattoo on his right forearm that reads "Anderson."

"Jayden, please reach out to let us know you are okay," a statement from the family read on the JWRC Facebook page. "I know this seems difficult, but there is no problem that we can't work through."

Anyone with information about Anderson is asked to contact the St. Cloud Police Department at 320-345-4444.
