RANDOLPH (CBS) — Police are searching for a 16-year-old boy, and are asking for the public’s help in finding him.

The Randolph Police Department said Christopher Defreitas was last seen around 8 p.m. Monday at his Randolph home.

They said there were no signs of foul play in Defreitas’ disappearance, and that he went missing after an argument at home.

Investigators were searching the area in and around Randolph Reservoir Tuesday, where they said Defreitas’ clothing was found 15 feet from the shore. They also said they had found Defreitas’ cell phone.

“Where the items were found, the clothing and the cell phone, they were in the shallows of the water,” explained  Acting Chief John Hamelburg. “Where those items were found, they were not thrown. He had to walk into the water or someone had to walk into the water to place those items there.”

Police described him as 5’10” and 133 lbs. with brown hair, brown eyes, and an athletic build.

Fellow classmates were also notified that Defreitas was missing.

“Today we had actually an assembly at school, and the whole class was there,” explained Terrence Simpson, a Randolph High School student. “The principal let us know that this guy went missing and if you have any information let the parents know or the teachers know so we can try to find him and bring him home safely.”

Randolph Police are asking anyone with information about Defreitas’ whereabouts to contact them.
