A Florida mother is pleading for her son's safe return home after he went missing last week.

The Lake Wales Police Department says that 15-year-old Logan Michael Willard is missing. They shared a message from Logan's mother onto their Facebook page. It said that Logan went missing sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

In the post, Logan's mother said that he has dark brown hair, brown eyes, freckles on his cheeks and nose, and weighs about 115 pounds. He likes to wear a white hat. He also has his black backpack with orange trim, red Puma tennis shoes, and a pocket knife. 

Logan is said to have left on foot. He lives in the Lake Wales Ranchetts off of Masterpiece, which is five miles behind the Eagle Ridge Mall. He also attends Lake Wales High school and is going into the 10th grade this upcoming year. He is in JROTC. 

The Facebook ended the post with Logan's mother pleading "I am begging you to please share this with friends family or anyone else you can to help us find our son. Please help us get him home safe. We love him and are worried sick about him."

Please contact the Polk County Sheriff's Office at 863-678-4170 if you have any information on where Logan may be.
