Federal agents seek help in identifying endangered teen

Federal agents in Minnesota are trying to solve a mystery in hopes of helping some children in a dangerous situation. Agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations are asking for the public's help in identifying a boy they believe to be in his teens seen in a Web-based video.

Asking for help in this way is unusual according to ICE spokesperson Shawn Neudauer.

“Issuing a public plea is an extraordinary step by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations warranted by our belief that there may be young people at risk, without the ability to ask for law enforcement’s help," he said.

The child is thought to be between 13 and 19 and possibly has been in either Minnesota or western Wisconsin in the past 18 to 24 months. Agents think that by identifying the teen they will be able to help at least one other child out of a dangerous situation and possibly more.

People with information can contact ICE/HSI on their tip line at 866-347-2423 or on-line at http://www.ice.gov/tips/

    He has forhead frontal bossing and wide spaced eyes both of which could be Soto's Syndrome which might mean that he is too large for his age, he could be as young as 10 years old. I was 6 foot at 11. If he is missing and he hasn't had growth hormone treatment he is even more endangered because he is younger than he looks.

    He is not in any danger. The stills are from a video where he gets naked waist down and is doing stuff to his younger sis (approx 4yrs). She isn't exactly putting up a struggle either. Several things happen in the 14 min vid then at the end I think someone comes homes coz he jumps up and gets dressed. The Feds deliberately word it to make it sound like he is in danger hoping that more people might ID him. Apparently he's 15. The actual child the Feds are saying is in danger is his sis.
