Mother Reports Fifteen Year Old Runaway *UPDATE

The public is asked to help locate Wyatt Field who may not be wearing glasses

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.

If anyone has information regarding Wyatt or his whereabouts, please contact YCSO immediately at 928-771-3260. Refer to case number 12-026607. Citizens should contact the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office with information or questions.

  1. We don’t understand why young people think running away is the right thing to do with anger and disagreements. The state should step in and require this family to undergo anger management classes. We know the parents will want this because they love their son and the son needs it because he isn’t emotionally capable of dealing with his emotions. Good wishes to this family and we are praying and we ask all others to pray for Wyatt’s safe return home. God bless everyone.

  2. Unfortunately, Frank and Patty, we are not privy to the relationships between the parents and the son. There could be a very good possibility that the parents are not doing as good of a job as they should as parents and that their son is just acting out his frustration, because as a 15 year old, he isn’t capable to handle it.

    I would like to echo what you posted above: “Good wishes to this family and we are praying and we ask all others to pray for Wyatt’s safe return home. God bless everyone!”

  3. Umizki's says:

    God brought him safe and sound to a place where Wyatt and his parents can begin again with His help. Counseling is a good idea and yes, Abe Koniarsky, we are not knowledgeable of their troubles but if the mother did not care, she wouldn’t have made the call. It’s a cry for help from everyone in that family and we pray for the best outcome for all. God bless them all.

  4. Don’t be to quick to judge. I know Wyatt and the person he was living with. Yes, he needs help, and yes the person he was living with does care about him.
