Police are searching for a missing 16-year-old Mesa boy who may be suicidal, the Mesa Police Department said in a release.

Zachary Daniel Moore was last seen on Thursday just before 9 a.m. at Westwood High School, located at 945 W. Eighth Street.

It is believed that Moore left his cell phone near Country Club and Brown after texting the reporting party that he was “done” and was going to harm himself.

Moore has been treated for depression and self-harm in the past. He is currently not on any medication and his behavior could be unpredictable.

Moore is described as being a white male standing six feet tall and weighing 135 lbs. He has red hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a grey hoodie with stripes, shorts and skate shoes. He was carrying a red backpack.

Anyone with information on Moore’s whereabouts is asked to contact Mesa police at (480) 644-2211.
