MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are asking for the public's help in their search for 13-year-old Christopher McGee.
Officials say McGee has been missing since Sunday, September 20th when he was last seen walking away from a home near Burleigh and Julia Streets. McGee is known to engage in risky behavior -- and could be a threat to himself and others. He's known to frequent the neighborhood near King and Auer.
"His behavior places him in danger," MPD Captain Johnny Sgrignuoli said. "The department is concerned about Mr. McGee because he is engaged in what is categorized as risky behavior. He tends to associate with other juveniles who also engage in that type of behavior. The department is concerned that he is a risk to the community as well."
A woman who says she's McGee's mother tells FOX6 News McGee was supposed to be on electronic monitoring when he disappeared.
She says lately he's been hanging out with the wrong kids, and she worries all this attention will convince him to keep running, but police say it's important they find him.
"We believe he is a danger to himself and we would like the public`s cooperation in locating Mr. McGee," Sgrignuoli said.
Officials describe McGee as a male, black, about 5'7" tall, 140 pounds with a thin build. Police say he has tattoos on his forearms with the letters 'C' and 'M.'
