A 17-year-old Aptos boy is missing, and the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help.
Nathan Phillips was last seen four days ago, on Dec. 2, by his family.
"The last time Nate was seen, he said he was 'going on an adventure' and left on his bike with limited supplies," Deputy Ryan Kennedy said.
"Nate has never run away before," Kennedy said.
A search found the Aptos High School student's white bicycle at Seacliff Beach near the cement ship.
The bicycle was in good condition, indicating the teen had not been involved in an accident that would have injured him.
Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team deputies searched beaches in Capitola and Aptos on all-terrain vehicles, and a helicopter conducted an aerial search Friday.
Phillips' family was puzzled when he talked about going on an adventure, but it was not the kind of thing he'd usually say.
A Facebook group page called "Find Nathan 2013" had 1,000 likes as of Friday evening.
Phillips is 5'7" tall, weighs 124 pounds, and has blonde hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information on Phillips' whereabouts should call the Sheriff's Office at 831-471-1121.
BOLO ALERT: Nick Guidry, 38 - Seattle, WASHINGTON (Navy sailor - phone pinged in Oakland, California)
Washington State veterinarian, Cherie Guidry reached out to this Examiner just minutes ago with further details regarding her husband Nick, who has been missing since Dec. 3, 2013.
Law enforcement officials have issued a BOLO, or "Be On the Lookout " alert.
OS1 Nick Guidry commutes daily from Marysville to Everett in his personal vehicle. From there he takes the metro bus into downtown Seattle to his job as a Navy recruiter, Seattle District.
He was last seen Tuesday leaving his job at approximately noon, suffering from an intense migraine for which he has sought treatment within the last few weeks. His prescription medications are not with him to anyone's knowledge.
Nick is 38, approximately 5' 8", 190 pounds. He is probably wearing denim jeans and a lightweight yellow-to-lime colored zip-up jacket; hardly sufficient for the extreme cold temperatures now hitting the Pacific Northwest.
Although his wife Cherie does not suspect foul-play, she is still distraught over his missing status. His phone last 'pinged' from Oakland, Calif., but relatives in California have not heard from him.
Nick and Cherie have a 10-year-old daughter.
Cherie has reached out to the public via her Facebook page and asks anyone with information on Nick's whereabouts to call her at 360-348-7037.
As of 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time today, Dec. 5, neither Cherie or Nick's commanding officer have any new information on his whereabouts.
