A 15-year-old Wylie student has been reported missing in Indianapolis. Stephen Kenneth Colbert was visiting the city with the organization Music for All, according to Indianapolis police.

The Wylie Independent School District said Colbert never checked after a band concert and a welcome event Thursday night. The students were in town for a band competition and were scheduled to come back to Wylie on Sunday, said the Wylie ISD.

 

Wylie ISD has notified Colbert’s parents who are asking the public to pray for their son’s safe return.

 

Friday night, Erick Colbert was told his son’s backpack, medication and wallet were found at his hotel.

“It’s hard, as more and more time goes by, to maintain, but, but I am … the kids we told them, ‘Hey we’re gonna’ find him,” said Colbert, father of three.

 

Stephen is the oldest, and has food allergies. That’s one concern the father is coping with, while wondering if that played a role in his disappearance.

 

“Was there some accidental ingestion of a food he can’t eat where he got nauseous and headed into a room so he could have some privacy and maybe he collapsed or something?” Colbert said.

 

Administrators and Colbert’s mother are in Indianapolis, Erick will join them on Saturday. On Friday night, his high school community had a prayer service behind the high school.

 

The event sponsor and the Butler University police along with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said they are working hard to make sure Colbert makes it home safe. The Wylie Police Department is also working with Indianapolis police who is handling the investigation.

 

The IMPD is asking people to call their police non-emergency number at 317-327-3811 if they have seen Colbert. The freshman band student is described as a black male, 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket, orange shirt, and brown khaki pants.

Wylie sent their top administrators to join the search that they are optimistic will end well.

  2. I was thinking of the thousands of children that disappear – then read Stephen is safe. Phew!

  3. Prayers are answered!
