A 24-year-old Minnesota native who lives in California has been reported missing and is believed to be at-risk, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. 

John Jack Stein was last seen at 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13, on the 3700 block of Kanan Road in Agoura Hills, California, where he lives. According to WCCO-TV, Stein is a Cretin-Derham Hall graduate and his parents still live in St. Paul. 

His family believes Stein may be attempting to return to Minnesota without money or a cellphone. 

The sheriff's department considers Stein to be at-risk because he suffers from depression and bipolar disorder. 

He is described as 6-foot-3, 180 pounds with blue eyes and shaggy, shoulder-length strawberry-blonde hair. He has a tattoo of a sparrow on his right upper thigh and circle tattoos on his left pectoral. Stein was last seen wearing a Tommy Hilfiger navy blue hoodie, with black shorts and a gray t-shirt. 

Anyone with information that could help locate Stein should call CrimeStoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
