Texas Family Searches for Missing Teen in F-M

Posted: Updated:

The mother of a missing teenager opens up to Valley News Live as she searches the valley high and low for her son.

In just the evening hours on Friday, Jolene Stubbs says people have been calling her saying they've seen her son the same day-- and in Fargo!

Valley News Team's Hope Hanselman met with the family as they try to solve this mystery.

16 year-old Edward Stubbs, of Texas, goes by Ashton. He's been missing for more than a month.

"He didn't have a car, didn't have anything... Just kind of disappeared," Jolene, his mother, said.

Whatever sent him walking off a job site in Dickinson in June is now sending his family into a tailspin.

"I've been thinking he's going to be back home, probably, in Texas, this whole time," she said.

Jolene drove from El Paso, Texas to Fargo... fueled by the prospect of finding her son.

"I actually went and looked in an old abandoned house first, you know I'm honestly desperate. I first started there, looking at old buildings, under bridges, putting out posters," she said.

But, the Stubbs are still holding out hope in finding Ashton. Just a few days ago, he was seen right here on Broadway Street and that news has everyone joining the search.

"We've just been looking for him and trying to see if anyone found him or saw him," Wesley Stubbs, Ashton's 10 year-old cousin, said.

Wesley put a call out to anyone driving by his Gatorade stand in West Fargo.

"I'll give away free Gatorade and, if they want, they can donate money. Then, I'll hand out a picture so they can have a fresh mind," he said.

A fresh mind is what Wesley wants in this search, because it will might take clear eyes and a clear heart to put this family back together.

"Everybody wants you home, Ashton. I know that you probably felt unloved and thinking nobody cares... I'm willing to do anything to just get you back," Jolene said.

Ashton is about 5'10" and a slim build. He has blond hair and brown eyes.

Call Fargo Police if you have any information.
