SPANAWAY, Wash. — Authorities in Pierce County are asking for the public’s help to find a missing 10-year-old boy.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office says Amilleon Dapree Bonds has been missing “under unknown circumstances” since Friday, Aug. 2.  A guardian reported him missing Thursday, Aug. 8, the sheriff’s office said on Facebook.
