Declan Crouch, 13-year-old boy missing from Australia, simply disappears without a trace
Declan Crouch, a 13-year-old boy from Machans Beach, in Queensland, Australia, has apparently disappeared without a trace. According to reports, the Year 8 student has been missing since March 9, 2011. He was last seen getting on a school bus at approximately 3:00 pm, local time but never returned home.
Authorities are concerned as no one, not even the teen’s friends and Facebook buddies, have heard from him. It appears that Declan Crouch did not runaway, but may have met with foul play. Authorities also say that Declan did not take anything with him; such as clothing, money or food. Though reports suggest he may have been upset with family members regarding a personal matter, the lack of communication has caused alarm.
It is possible that Declan Crouch ran away from home without taking anything and is currently harbored by friends. If that is the case, those harboring Declan are encouraged to contact authorities and assure them that Declan is safe.
Declan Crouch is described at 170 cm (5’6”); has brown hair and brown eyes (though his hair may be dyed with a purple tint); and is of slim build. If you have any information regarding Declan Crouch’s whereabouts you are asked to contact 1-800-333-000 or 4030 7000.
