Saturday, March 18, 2023

EATON, IN - Authorities in Central Indiana and the multi-state region are desperately searching for an Indiana teenager who was last seen on Thursday and “is believed to be in extreme danger.”

According to a missing person alert, Scottie Dean Morris, age 14, was last seen in the small town of Eaton, IN (76 miles northeast of Indianapolis), Thursday night at 8:30 p.m.

Eaton Indiana Police Department issued a Silver Alert for Morris on Friday but had already been searching for the missing teen since Thursday night. “He is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance,” the Silver Alert notice reads.

Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources deployed two boats to search for Morris in a nearby river. In addition, the police department utilized two infrared drones to search for Morris from the skies and Grant County has sent two bloodhound teams to look for Morris on the ground.

More than 100 volunteers worked with Eaton Police on Friday in the search for the teen.

Morris is described as having brown hair and blue eyes, and is 5′ 4″ tall, according to police. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and red and black shorts.
