Texas woman pleads for help finding son in F-M area

FARGO – An El Paso, Texas woman is asking the Fargo-Moorhead community for help to find her 16-year-old son, who has been missing in the area for more than a month.

FARGO – An El Paso, Texas woman is asking the Fargo-Moorhead community for help to find her 16-year-old son, who has been missing in the area for more than a month.

Edward Stubbs, a thin, 5-foot-10-inch teen with blonde hair, was last spotted walking along Broadway in downtown Fargo a few weeks ago. His mother, Jolene Stubbs, said her son usually wears a hoodie with the hood drawn up.

Jolene Stubbs hugged her son goodbye in mid-May as he boarded a bus headed from El Paso to Fargo for a summer of construction work. Edward Stubbs was staying with a cousin in a south Fargo apartment building.

Stubbs disappeared on June 17 in Dickinson, where he had traveled with his cousin for a construction job. He stopped by his cousin’s apartment briefly on June 20, but none of his family members have seen him since.

Jolene Stubbs said there were no signs of trouble before her son walked off the job in Dickinson. The boy’s cousin told her that her son was “a good kid and a hard worker.”

“He has no clue what happened,” Stubbs said of her son’s cousin. “I’ve been thinking he’s just going to return home.”

She guessed that her son is confused and may be feeling unwanted.

“He’s definitely in trouble. He could be doing anything,” she said.

After family members posted photos of Edward Stubbs around town, they received a call earlier this week from someone who thought they had spotted him a few weeks ago walking downtown, looking confused.

Jolene Stubbs said she and police believe her son is still in the Fargo-Moorhead area. She flew into Fargo Thursday to look for him.

If you have any information about Stubbs or think you have seen him in town, call Jolene Stubbs at (801) 231-3121 or contact the Red River Dispatch Center at (701) 451-7660.
