The Los Angeles Police Department are turning to the public for help in locating a missing Hollywood boy who did not return from visiting a friend's house last night in his neighborhood. Levon Karaelian is 13 years old, and has brown hair and brown eyes. He is five feet, two inches tall, and weighs about 160 pounds. The boy, an asthmatic, was last seen wearing a black jacket, yellow pants, and grey tennis shoes.Karaelian left his family home in the 1500 block of North Schrader Boulevard in Hollywood at around 6 p.m. last night on foot to see a friend who lives nearby. When her son did not get back when expected, Karaelian's mother contacted the friend, but found that Levon never showed up there. He has not had any contact with his family since.

Anyone with information about the missing boy is asked to contact the LAPD.
