The Grand Junction Police Department is asking the community to keep an eye open for a teen with medical issues who ran away from his temporary guardian.

[UPDATE] 5:18 p.m. Sept. 6 -- Nick has been located and is safe and sound.

17-year-old Nick has medical issues that require medication, and it could be dangerous for the teen to be out in the heat without food and water.
