The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Fort Myers Police Department are searching for an endangered missing teenager.

Alexander Connolly, 16, was last seen Sunday in the 3000 block of Broadway Avenue in Fort Myers. He was at last seen at about 8 a.m.

Police are also searching for a male witness who could have seen the missing and endangered Connolly. They are looking for his dark-colored sedan as well.

Fort Myers police would not tell WINK news why they consider Connolly to be endangered. Police did have K-9 units sniffing around central Fort Myers. Authorities say getting dogs involved is routine to determine if Alexander walked away or was picked up by someone.

He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and jeans and white shoes.

Connolly is 5’7″ and weighs 135 pounds. He has blonde hair and hazel eyes. He also has a scar on his right eyelid. Connolly’s date of birth is September 1, 2004.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of this child, you are being asked to call FMPD at 239-321-7700.

Fort Myers police say they are hoping someone calls after seeing the alerts.

Angelica Blomquist, a neighbor who usually sees Alexander during her morning run, hopes that he is safe and returns home.

“I have a 16-year-old daughter and I would be like out of it if it happened to my kid, especially a good kid, you know?” Blomquist said. “I hope he gets returned back and I hope it’s on a positive note, but yeah, I’m sorry to the parents.”
