Veronica Torrence is hoping the community can help find her grandson.

Torrence said Tylar Redditt, 16, left his mother’s home on Tuesday, Dec. 13, and hasn’t been seen since.

Torrence said he was last seen in the area around Sportsman’s Inn on Highway 21 south of Bogalusa.

“We’re just really concerned about him,” she said. “If you’ve seen him, please call the local authorities. We’re just worried.”
