Minneapolis police tell GoMN they don't have much information on 22-year-old Tony Desha Dequan Thomas, that's why they need your help.

He's been missing since April 4, according to the department's Facebook post.

While Officer Corey Schmidt could not go into detail about why Thomas is considered "vulnerable," Schmidt says it's medical related.

Police aren't really specific on where Thomas was last seen. But he may have been downtown or at the YouthLink shelter which helps homeless youth.

Police ask that if you see Thomas, call 911. If you have information on him, contact the department's tip line at 612-691-8477.
