MISSING: 13-Year-Old Florida Boy Vanishes While Walking to Store

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a Missing Child Alert on Sunday after a 13-year-old boy disappeared from Leon County.

Darius Swain, 13, was last seen in Tallahassee, in the 1800 block of Nekoma Court. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black shirt, and Nike flip-flops. He’s described as a Black male who stands 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs around 130 pounds.

My baby’s been missing since Friday,” Darius’ grandfather, Casa James, told ABC 27. “I don’t know if he hungry, we don’t know if he hurt, we don’t know none of that.”

Police said Darius was visiting his father at the time he vanished. He was last seen walking on foot to a nearby Dollar General store at around 2:30 p.m. on Friday. He left his phone at home, according to family members.

Anyone with information on the child’s whereabouts should call the TPD at (850) 891-4200 or FDLE at 1-888-356-4474.
