Arizona Teen Missing Since The Fourth of July

Jarrett Brooks

The search for 16-year-old Jarrett Brooks, who has been missing for almost four months from his home in Joseph City, Arizona, continues as his family and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) seek the public’s assistance in locating him.

Jarrett left his home, on foot, at around 6:30 am on July 4, 2023. His mother, Laura Brooks, reported him missing to local law enforcement soon after and numerous searches were conducted within the community, but there was no sign of Jarrett.

Laura told NCMEC that she has not given up on the search for her son, and the family’s concern for his well-being grows with each passing day. “I love and miss him so much” Laura said, “I just want him to come back home to me”.

Authorities believe that Jarrett may travel to Winslow, Arizona or to San Antonio, Austin, Temple or Stamford, Texas. Jarrett is described as 6’0″ and weighed 140lbs when he was last seen. He has brown eyes with blonde hair.

If you have any information about his disappearance, please contact NCMEC at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office (Arizona) at 1-928-524-4050.
