Sue Graddy just wants to know her son is alive. It's been seven weeks since Noah Graddy was last seen leaving a house in Kasson. Since then, there have been no reported sightings of Noah and little information as to where he might be.

"Even if he would get in touch with us," she said. "We just want to hear from him, to know he's ok." She said not knowing if her son is ok, is the hardest part. "We've gone through every scenario in our head and we are scared for his well being."

She said even if Noah would just reach out and let the family know he is ok, that would be a huge relief. She begs anyone that knows anything to please come forward, tell someone, help bring Noah home.

Noah left his residence in Byron on Jan. 19 and reportedly was last seen leaving a house in Kasson on Jan. 22. Since then there has been no reported contact with Noah. The family does not believe that there isn't anyone out there who knows something about his disappearance.

"How does someone just disappear?" Noah's sister Savannah Vandenberg said.

"Someone knows something. None of this makes any sense, but we know someone knows something that could put all of this together."

Savannah said information about Noah's disappearance has been sparse and begs anyone who knows anything to please come forward. "Someone knows what happened to him and where he is - just please tell us."

When Noah left, he did not take any clothes with him. The family believes someone helped him leave home.

"He's not a leader," Sue said. "He's a follower, we hope if anyone did help him leave that they would come forward."

Both Sue and Savannah are tired of not being able to sleep at night because Noah is out there somewhere and they have no answers, no indication as to where he is.

"Nothing connects," Savannah said. "If someone would just come forward and let us know if they know anything, it would be a great help." She said they have had some contact with Noah's friends but no one seems to know anything.

"It's frustrating, we just want to know where he is." She urges parents to talk to their kids, to see if they know anything and if so, to please come forward. "I think it's ridiculous that if anyone does know anything, that they think he's safe out there," Savannah said. "We don't think he's in a safe environment."

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Department, Dodge County Sheriff's Department, Kasson Police Department and the Minnesota Bureau of Apprehension are all working on finding Noah.





Anyone who may have information regarding Noah Graddy's whereabouts or has information related to his disappearance is asked to call 507-328-6800 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
