CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (WPRI) — Family and friends gathered at Central Falls high School Friday night to pray for the safe return of Charles Engley.

The 16-year old has been missing since February 24. Charles’ aunt dropped him off at school that morning, and saw him go inside the building. At some point during the day, he disappeared.

“Look at the weather conditions. He’s cold. He’s probably hungry,” Charles’ mother Farha Engley told Eyewitness News.

“It’s a pain that we’ve never felt,” added Engley’s cousin Jeffry De Los Rios. “It’s a pain I wouldn’t want any family member to go through.”

Anyone with information about the teen’s whereabouts is asked to call Central Falls Police Department at (401) 727-7411 or if the caller wishes to remain anonymous they can call the Police Department Tips Line at (401) 727-7420.
