    MSM from last year, when Freddy went missing:

    http://www.heartlandconnection.com/n...aspx?id=936834

    Fredrick Workman was living at a youth facility in Des Moines and his mother, Anna Shields, said her family believes he walked out when he was left alone outside on August 2. Shields said Workman's probation officer told the teen he needed to complete his program before he would be able to come home and that may be what trigged Workman to take off...

    "It's stressful," she said. "He's a quiet type. My main reason why I'm trying to find him, to locate him, is because he needs medications. He's ADHD/ODD and I just want to get him back on his meds and make sure he's safe."

    Shields said family members searched parks in the Des Moines and West Des Moines area for about ten hours on Sunday and nine family members, including Freddy's stepdad, father, stepmom, aunt and cousin continued searching Tuesday, but with no luck.

    Shields told us she has been in contact with the West Des Moines Police Department, who told her they do not have the resources to help with the search.

    "I want everyone to know that Des Moines cops won't help," Shields said.

    I haven't found anything new either about Fredrick Workman. I hope he's safe and where he is, he stays safe and lets his mom know.

    Was the probation officer the last to hear from him?

    Seems by now Freddy would be 18, I can't seem to find many details on this. Did he take off alone? Who claims to be the last one to see him? Could foul play have happened and there was a cover up? I read somewhere, the family was continually calling the PD for info, and were told to stop calling, or harassment charges would be filed. How can a 15yr old, disappear, and no one follow up? Why is that facility he was at, not held responsible? I'm at a loss.
