The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) is hoping that the public can help locate a teenager reportedly missing since November.
According to HCSO Deputy Public Information Officer (PIO) Michael Terry, the missing and possibly endangered 17-year-old Joshua Ware was last seen on Nov. 17, 2021, getting into a silver sedan as he was leaving the Youth Family Alternative Center in Spring Hill.
Ware, who also has an active Juvenile Pickup Order for Failure to Appear on a vehicle burglary charge, is known to stay in a tent in a wooded area near County Line Road and Shady Hill Road in Pasco County.
He is described as a white male, 5-feet, 10-inches tall weighing 230 pounds with brown hair and eyes.
Anyone who has seen Ware or who has information about his whereabouts should call the HCSO at 352-754-6830.
