5 NEWS UPDATE (Thursday, January 30, 8:45 p.m.):

Family members have confirmed 15-year-old Nathaniel "Gage"Confere returned home around 7:45 Thursday night.


Police are still looking for a 15-year old boy they say hasn't been seen since Monday. Police said they think he's a runaway. They wanted to warn you. If you're helping him hide out, you could face criminal chargers.
15-year old Nathaniel "Gage" Confere was last seen on January 27 on Camden Avenue in Buckhannon. He's described as having light brown or dirty blonde hair with hazel eyes. He was wearing a brown Carhart jacket, blue jeans, and camo lace-up boots. He may also have a cross necklace on. 
5 News spoke with Gage's family on Wednesday. They said he's never done anything like this, and is a good kid. They also said they're extremely worried for his safety, and just want him home.
"Gage, we just love you bub, and we want you home. We're scared. It doesn't matter what you've done or what you've gotten into, if you have. We don't know what the terms are or the reasons why, but we love you and we're behind you and we want you home," said Andrea Lantz, one of Gage's aunts.
"Gage, if you see this, don't be afraid buddy. Come home, we love you, no matter what you do," said Darletta McCray, another one of Gage's aunts. "We won't tell anyone if someone wants to contact us secretly, we will not release the names, we just want him to come home and know he's safe."
If you have any information, call the Buckhannon Police Department at 304-472-5723 or the Upshur County Comm Center at 304-472-9550. 


The family of a 15-year-old boy in Buckhannon claims he went missing Tuesday.

They're looking for Nathaniel "Gage" Confere. Other media agencies are reporting he is missing, but we have yet to get verification on that.
