Police in Stearns County are looking for a teenage runaway who has been missing for five days after failing to get on a bus to a football game.

Tyler Curtis, 17, was due to board the bus to a Kimball High School game on Friday, Sept. 27, but failed to get on, the sheriff's office said.

However, they later received reports that Curtis had been seen at another high school football game, this one in Sauk Rapids, that same evening.

This leads police to believe he may be staying in or near Sauk Rapids, but they've had no luck locating him this far.

He's described as 5'8" tall, weighing 200 pounds, and was last seen wearing black shorts and a black Nike sweatshirt with "Kimball Football" on it.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 320-251-4240.
