WENATCHEE – Police in Wenatchee continue to search for a 14-year-old missing teen. Xavier Richtmeirer left his home Thursday night, February 16th, at around 11:30pm.  His mother, Teresa Markray, said the family believes he ran away since it appears he had taken a change of clothes and shoes with him.

Xavier last seen Friday

The family received several reports that he had been seen in the Wenatchee area on Friday, February 17th, and he was on social media Saturday in the 11:00pm hour.  Based on information they had received over the weekend, Xavier was expected to be at school today but did not show up.  Markray says they are worried because this is completely out of character for him.


The boy is described as 5’5″ tall and weighs approximately 125 pounds with brown hair and eyes. He was last seen in a black Nike hoodie, blue jeans, and red and black Nike basketball shoes.  Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Gonzales at the Wenatchee Police department at 509.663.9911. The case number is 17W02360.  You can also visit the Wenatchee Police Department website at http://www.wenatcheewa.gov/government/police/
