The Helena Police Department has issued a missing/endangered person advisory for a 16-year-old Native American boy.

Cody Lane James is a 5 feet seven inches tall and 145 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

James was last seen on Nov. 27 at 11 p.m. in Helena wearing a black shirt, pants and shoes.

He might be driving a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix with Montana license plate 5-16688B that has three black rims and one chrome rim. He may be with two other male juveniles.

He may be headed to the Seattle area.

Police have reason to be concerned for his safety, as James has been sending “goodbye” text messages to his friends.
