URGENT: Teen boy vanishes in sub-zero temps after fight with parents, leaving cell phone behind

Parents in Iowa are pleading for the return of their teen son who left home during a snowstorm on Tuesday night, following an argument with his parents.

KCCI reports that Corey Brown, 13, was last seen on surveillance camera footage leaving his Marshalltown home at around 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday night. According to the report, Marshalltown police told the news station that Brown had verbally fought with his parents earlier that evening, which the police chief characterized to the Times Republican as a “normal parental discussion.” The same report indicates that Brown’s parents took the boy’s cell phone.

The parents, Michelle and Craig Brown, reportedly did not realize the boy had left home until when they woke up the next morning at about 5:30 a.m. Police swiftly began a missing persons investigation, aided by hundreds of members of the community, according to the Times Republican.

Corey Brown is a white male, about 5 feet tall and weighing 98 pounds, with brown hair. When he left home, he was wearing a black and green coat and a Seattle Seahawks hat in the same colors. He was also wearing black pants, a red shirt, and grey shoes.

“If you’re out there, please come home,” Corey’s mother said at a news conference pleading for the public’s help finding their son.

“We love you more than you’ll ever know. Please, please just come home.”

Anyone with information regarding Brown’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Marshalltown Police Department at 641-754-5725.
