WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waterloo police are searching for a missing teen. Moe Sed was last seen Thursday afternoon at his home. 

Moe Sed's father called all his friends and even looked for him at his favorite places, before eventually calling police Friday morning. 

"Right now I'm just thinking that because he's been gone for several days, I don't want to believe that he's dead, but everything is in God's hands," said Phetu Lun, Moe Sed's father. 

Moe Sed is a refugee from Burma and his family has called Waterloo home for four years. 

They say he has special needs and they're worried because he needs his medicine.

He speaks accented English, he's very quiet and shy. He's also never ran away or went missing before.

"Please help us find him. We are really worried about him as his parents. We haven't seen him for days and we really want to see his face," said Phetu Lun, "because we cannot do it alone because we do not speak English very well so we need help. We need your help to find him."

EMBARC, Waterloo Community Schools, and community members are organizing searches for Moe Sed. They did that over the weekend, and will continue to do so until he is found.
