Chad RandallAttention Los osos and slo county friends. These pictures were sent to me by a friend because his son is friends with these boys. From what I’ve been told Mason Ellis is missing as of last night he has not had contact with anyone. He was last seen with the other boy in these pics Preston Hanson. Please if you live in the local area keep your eyes peeled for him and share this. Thank you. If you have any info please contact the sheriff or slo PD.

Rosela JayeHey friends based in or connected to CA, I have a favor to ask. A former classmate of mine has just reported her son missing. Can you please help spread the word? They are from the Morro Bay/Los Osos area. Here’s some additional info from mom, Jensine Hanson.Pleading for help. They’ve been gone since before midnight. Talk to your kids if they go to any schools in the area please. Any info could help us bring our boys home. We are pretty sure they’re both in all black clothing. Preston has a black/great camo backpack with red NIKE stitched on. So many people asking what they can do: take a drive in your neighborhood and look for them if you can, please. Thank you for sharing this info.
