Usually parents have a tough time tracking their teens when they go missing, and are left waiting at home for them to call or return home, but the parents of Chris Carpenter have gotten a lead that their teen may be in Colorado.
Chris, who lives in Naperville, Illinois left behind a letter on August 22, suggesting that he was running away and he might consider suicide.
His dad, Mike Carpenter, said for some reason Chris thought he was a failure, which tends to be a common thing that many teens go through.
Through Facebook, the Carpenters have been receiving tips. One was from a man at a bus station in Chicago, and a woman that says she saw him at her garage sale, then a Denver bank, told them that someone tried to access their account in Denver.
Janice, Chris’ mother and Mike, arrived in Denver to canvas the town with flyers and let everyone know they are searching for Chris.
Chris if 5’10” tall, 150 ponds, brown hair ad hazel eyes. He is on a silver bicycle and carrying a large backpack ad laptop computer.
