Jack Egan, a soon-to-be-sophomore at Natrona County High School, left his home early Wednesday morning, between 12:30 a.m. and 1:45 a.m.

His mother thinks that Jack is currently with his friends.

"Jack was last seen at our home in the Big Tree area," his mother Audrey told K2 Radio News. "He was sleeping in his room when we checked in him at 12:30 a.m. When we checked on him again at 1:45 a.m. he was gone. He had made his bed and left a note saying that he was sorry he was leaving, but that he needed to be with his friends for awhile."

Audrey stated that Jack wrote in the note that he would still show up for his 10 o'clock appointment with his therapist, but that he never did.

"That is when we called the police and filed a Runaway Report," she stated.

Jack is 14 years old, about 5'3 and weighing 110 pounds. He has dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, and acne on his forehead. His mom said that he has a blue backpack with him.

"Honestly, we think he is probably holed up with a 'friend' somewhere here in Casper so we are hoping that a parent will instruct him to call us or to, even better, come home," Audrey stated.
