NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) — The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office needs help looking for a 16-year-old Noblesville High School student who did not return home from school Thursday.

Police say William Nathan-Keith Watkins is 5 feet 9 inches tall, 160 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

He was supposed to ride the bus home Thursday, but never got on the bus, and no one has seen him since Thursday during school hours.

Police are treating his disappearance as a runaway, so it does not rise to the level for an Amber Alert or Silver Alert, but his family is concerned about his welfare.

Anyone with information on William's whereabouts should call Hamilton County Public Safety Communications at 317-773-1282 or Detective Petty at 317-776-9887.
