OC Sheriff Seeking Help in Finding 19-Year-Old in Cypress

CYPRESS (CNS) - The Orange County Sheriff's Department today circulated a photo of a missing 19-year-old man described as having mild intellectual disabilities and asked for help in locating him.

Eddie Martinez was last seen at 2:30 p.m. Thursday near Cypress High School . He was wearing a t-shirt, jeans, gray shoes and carrying a bright green backpack.

He is Hispanic, 5 feet, 5 inches tall and 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

``Eddie's intellectual disabilities cause him to behave similar to a 12-year-old, and he likely will not verbalize his full name or address,'' according to a sheriff's statement posted on Twitter along with the young man's photo. ``Eddie does not take any medication and does not have a history of going missing.''

Anyone with information on his whereabouts was asked to call sheriff's dispatch at 714-647-7000.
