Payson police are searching for an 11-year-old who ran away from a state juvenile justice facility in Provo.

Lt. Bill Wright said Sebastian West ran away from Vantage Point, a youth services center, where he was taken Sunday to provide a brief break from his family following an issue at home.

He’s believed to have fled with a 15-year-old and 17-year-old who were also at the facility, Wright said.

Sebastian was last seen in Pleasant Grove, but Wright said police aren’t sure how he got there.

Wright said Sebastian isn’t facing any criminal charges, but because of his age, police and his mother are concerned about his safety and need to locate him.

Sebastian is about 4-foot-9 and weighs about 85 pounds. He was last seen wearing gray shorts, a yellow T-shirt and white shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 801-375-3601.
