We're asking the public's help in finding our son, 28-year-old Jeremy Alex.

Jeremy disappeared in Northport, Maine on April 24, 2004. A woman who lives on Pound Hill Road in Northport spoke with him around 5:20 p.m. He was acting erratic and paranoid and she called police, but he ran into the woods before they could arrive.

The Jeremy Alex Fund, "Helping Kids at Risk Find the Right Road," has been created as a permanent fund with the Piscataqua Charitable Foundation, Piscataqua Region. Funds are designated with the Portsmouth Rotary Club to help kids at risk.

Shortly after that a motorist saw Jeremy crossing Route 1. He has not been seen since. His van, with his keys and cell phone, were found abandoned in a small parking area off of Pound Hill Road in Northport.

Two searches, on April 27 and May 2, failed to turn up any trace of Jeremy. His family and friends, are asking for your help in locating him.

How can you help? Perhaps you saw or heard something unusual on the night of April 24, 2004 that would help us find Jeremy.

"We believe foul play may have been involved and really need to find closure. We hope and pray Jeremy is still alive and need help in finding him."
