A Franklin County family is looking for help finding its 16-year-old son, who they say ran away from home Nov. 7.
Kenneth Gray Douglas-Lenk is 6-feet tall and weighs 168 pounds, said his mother, Lisa Douglas. He has blue eyes and reddish brown hair that is short on the sides and long on the top, though he was last seen with his hair dyed black. He has braces on his upper and lower teeth.
Douglas-Lenk goes by Kenneth, Kenny or Ken, but is known as Gray to his family, Douglas said.
He was briefly caught by police around 1 a.m. Nov. 9 in Hermiston, Douglas said. Douglas-Lenk was again caught by West Richland Police later that day.
Police released Douglas-Lenk, but detained a female he was with who had violated a restraining order by being with him, Douglas said.
Douglas-Lenk suffers from asthma, obsessive compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder, Douglas said.
His father is Roger Lenk, a Boy Scout leader and former city government official who has fought annexation of the unincorporated “doughnut hole” by Pasco.
Anyone with information on Douglas-Lenk’s whereabouts is asked to call the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office at 509-545-3510.
