Cherry Arizona (August 12, 2011) – *UPDATE* Wyatt found safe and sound at a church in Prescott Valley, Arizona late on the afternoon of August 15, 2012 reports Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office detectives.
On Saturday, August 11, 2012, Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at a residence in a remote area of the Cherry community regarding a runaway juvenile. Cherry is located northeast of Arizona State Highway 169 between SR Highway 69 and Arizona Interstate Highway 17.
The mother of 15-year-old Wyatt Field told deputies he walked away from home after a verbal argument around 1:00 in the afternoon. Wyatt left the home in a similar manner in the past but always returned in a reasonable timeframe.
Deputies are concerned for Wyatt’s safety due to the remote location, along with weather and environmental elements related to exposure. This concern assumes Wyatt remained in the area and has not obtained the means to locate elsewhere.
Wyatt is approximately 5’ 07”, very thin build, with short brown hair. The image to the right shows him wearing glasses but Wyatt did not leave with them.
Wyatt was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blue sleeveless shirt. He was carrying an old gallon vinegar bottle to hold drinking water. The bottle had orange colored string ties as a handle.
Deputies believe Wyatt walked for some period of time along Cherry Creek Road and Old Cherry Road in the White Horse Ranch subdivision. No concerning medical issues were reported. The search has been ongoing since the initial call and included helicopter flyovers of the area.
