Gilroy Luther, of Kirtland, was last seen early that morning by his aunt who was leaving for work. He was gone when she returned from work that evening, Lt. Cory Tanner said.
The family originally searched for Luther but has asked the sheriff's office for help.
Luther has a slight history of running away from home, but normally returns with a couple days.
Family members said Luther has a mental disability and is significantly small in stature, Tanner said.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Det. Katie Macsalka at 505-334-6622.
