Family and police are searching for a Vancouver teen believed to have ties with local gangs who went missing last month.

Joseph D. Wolf, 15, was last seen May 31, said his mother, Hiedi Barger, adding that Wolf may be wearing a gray Raiders cap or a black beanie and gray or red Vans shoes. He's likely wearing the pictured plaid vest and khaki pants.

When Wolf was reported missing to police on June 3, the Safe Streets Task Force and the missing persons detective were notified, said Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for the Vancouver Police Department. There is a warrant out for Wolf’s arrest.

His criminal history includes theft, assault, malicious mischief and possessing brass knuckles, according to Clark County court documents. Barger describes her son as five-feet nine-inches tall, 125 pounds, with short dirty blonde hair and hazel eyes. She said he may be in the Hearthwood or Rose Village area. People who see the teen are asked to call 911.
