HILLSBORO, Ore. -- A Hillsboro woman is asking for help finding her 14-year-old son, who has been missing since Friday afternoon.

Drew Martin and a friend were dropped off at the Orenco MAX Station so they could go to a concert in Portland.

Drew's mother, Erica Spencer, told KGW she is worried because he only took a backpack with him, and had no money or identification on him.

“He's never run away before and we're really worried about him,” she said. “This is so out of character for him. I don't know why he would do this.”

Police however said that the boy who was with Drew has run away numerous times before.

Monday morning Spencer was working with TriMet to get security footage from the MAX platform. She hoped it would offer clues into her son's disappearance.

Drew (pictured, above right) was described as 5-foot-2, 100 lbs., with brown hair and blue eyes.

The principal of Hillsboro High School, where Drew attends classes, called an all-staff meeting Monday morning to make everyone aware of the teen's disappearance and prepare counselors. Arturo Lomeli said he's also hoping that kids will come forward with information which could help investigators.

Anybody who has seen Drew or knows where he might be is asked to call Portland or Hillsboro police.
