UPDATE | 1:38 p.m., April 22 — The search continues for Jason Abel, however, the Jeffco Sheriff's Office has determined he is no longer considered to be at-risk.

GOLDEN, Colo. — A 17-year-old remains missing after last being seen at Golden High School Monday morning.

The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office initially thought Jason Abel might have been in the area of Fossil Trace Golf Course and South Platte River Road because of data obtained from his cell phone. Investigators later determined the data was outdated.

Abel was last seen at 10:09 a.m. at Golden High School on Monday.

Abel is described as a 5-foot-7, thin, white teenage boy with long brown hair. He was last seen wearing a navy blue puffy jacket, gray or blue shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation issued an endangered missing alert for Abel Tuesday evening.

Anyone who sees Abel is asked to call 303-271-0211 or 911.
