The Sarasota Police Department is asking for help in locating a missing 14-year-old.

Jabez Spann was last seen near 1500 23rd Street, in a residential neighborhood in Newtown, on Labor Day evening, Sept. 4. He has not been seen or heard from since then — more than a week ago.

He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

The police department posted on social media on Wednesday and Friday of last week, but is hoping to receive more leads.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact Detective Megan Buck at the Sarasota Police Department at 941-954-7067 or call 911.
