Locals had this to say:
"Before looking for this poor boy, go to schools near you..you will find children in a similar situation..help them...Thanks for showing good heart on Twitter..but help children near the first b for looking for those on social media."
"Reminds me of myself in high school. By God's grace I'm a well-established private doctor now. I'd like to help him if he is to be found... I know exactly what he is going through."
Lance Anthony Petersen said:
"If you find him please let me know. I can donate school wear."
