Worcester Police Seek Public Help in Search for Missing Teen Nikolas ReddySource: Facebook/Worcester Police Department (Official)

Authorities in Worcester are turning to the public for aid in the search for missing teenager Nikolas Reddy, age 15. Last seen on April 19th, Nikolas is described as being 5’4” tall, with long black hair, brown eyes, and wearing braces. He was reported wearing a gray sweatshirt, a Metallica T-shirt, and khaki pants at the time of his disappearance.

Efforts to locate the missing youth are intensifying, with the Worcester Police Department distributing information through social media with the urgency heard in the voice of a community that has one of its own vanished into the perplexities of the streets. With a picture widely circulated online by the Worcester PD, the department hopes to jog someone’s memory who might have seen Nikolas. Wearing long hair often tied back, as captured in the photograph shared, he could be any kid from the neighborhood; one moment there, the next moment a part of the distressing statistics of missing minors.

The department, concerned for his well-being, is urging anyone who might have information about Nikolas to come forward. In a post shared on their official Facebook page dated April 20th, 2024, the police provided a photograph and description of Nikolas, encouraging shares to help spread the word and gather any leads.

Those who might know something are urged to contact the Worcester Police Department at 508-799-8606 or call 911. The image of Nikolas, portrayed with an unmistakable air of adolescence that all but masks the gravity inherent in his situation, shows a young man who should be at home, at school, safe – not the subject of a police search and parental nightmare. The community thus looks on, hoping for a swift and safe return of one more child wandering from the fold, into the arms that await him.
