A Lafayette County teenager has been missing from home for more than 12 hours, according to Oxford mother April Henry’s Facebook post that has quickly spread throughout the LOU community.

According to the post, Brandon Woodall is a sophomore at Lafayette High School.

A police report was filed with the Senatobia Police Department, according to the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department; however, calls to SPD have not yet been returned.

An investigator with LCSD said the boy took his mother’s car in Senatobia but suspect he may be back in Lafayette County.

The vehicle is a red, 2014 Ford Escape with Camp Hopewell, Orca whales and springer spaniel logos on the back window.

According to Brandon’s mother, she and her son and two younger children went into a Kayes Food Mart in Senatobia Wednesday while her teenage son stayed in the car. When she came out of the store, the car was gone. Security at the store confirmed the boy drove off in the vehicle.

His mother told that he could be a “danger to himself.”

Anyone with information is asked to call April at 901-896-9516 or SPD at 662-562-5642.
