MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Police in Myrtle Beach are asking for the public’s help in finding a teenager who has been missing since March 20, reportedly after he left a note with the person he was saying with stating that he had debts to pay in his home county, and he was going to another state to find work.

Juan Terraza-Sanchez, 17, was reported missing on March 22, two days after he left behind a note and his cell phone, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report. The note thanked the person who called police for letting him stay at his home, but he was going to another state to find work.

The man who called police said Terraza-Sanchez had been living with him since February 23. The man told police that Terraza-Sanchez was not related to him, but Terraza-Sanchez had been caught entering the United State illegally and was detained by immigration for three to four months before he was placed in his home by Social Services.

The man told police he had spoken to Terraza-Sanchez’s mother in Guatemala, but she did not say where he was. The man said that he had heard Terraza-Sanchez talked about wanting to go to New York, but wasn’t sure if that was where he was planning on going.

The man also told police that Terraza-Sanchez was also due in court soon to see if he could become a legal refugee.

Terraza-Sanchez is described by police as 5-feet-8-inches tall, 160 pounds in weight, with black hair and brown eyes. He is possibly headed to North Carolina or New York.

If you’ve seen Terraza-Sanchez you’re asked to contact MBPD at 843-918-1382.
