For over nine hours, Hutchinson County authorities and residents searched for a missing Borger teenager. Police say 18-year-old Jarric Weber's car and wallet were found off of Highway 136 Thursday morning.

Weber was last seen at an Allsup's in Borger Wednesday night. His parents sent him to buy milk and believed he was going to come straight back home.

Thursday morning, his parents found Jarric's unoccupied car just inside the Borger city limits. The search for him began around 10 a.m. with the help from DPS, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and several area fire departments.

Authorities say they do no suspect foul play, but are calling the incident a mystery.

"There's nothing criminal about him," said Lt. Brandon Strope with the Borger Police Department. "However, considering the circumstances with the car being there without no explainable mechanical issues, no sign of a struggle or any kind of foul play makes us start a search and find out what's going on."

Several Hutchinson County residents stops what they were doing to help search for Jarric, something his family is grateful for.

"It means so much," said Mrs. Weber. "We don't have a lot of family here, I'm just amazed at how many people that are willing to help out."

Weber's parents also said he left his phone at home, saying they believed he would be back soon.

Several residents and officials searched by horseback, motorcycles, ATV's, cars, helicopters, and on foot. Strope says they will look for Jarric at a different location Friday morning, but have yet to say where.
