LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Police Department is asking for the public’s help locating Joseph Phillips. He is a 17-year-old male that was last seen on Sept. 14. He was last seen with blue hair.

LPD believes Joseph is a runaway and is in danger. He has medical conditions that require him to take medications that he has been without since the 14th.

He was last seen with blue hair and is reported to visit wooded spots in the Wea, Wabash Aveune, and Howarth Center areas. 

If anyone has information on Joseph’s whereabouts they are asked to contact the Lafayette Police at 765-807-1200 or the anonymous WeTip Hotline at 800-78-CRIME.
