Police issued an alert this afternoon for a missing 17-year-old boy who was last seen leaving his father's home in San Francisco on Jan. 22.

Police say Royal Foote has not been to school since that day over a month ago. Officer Albie Esparza said the boy has no known medical conditions and is not thought to be suicidal; however, investigators have interviewed his friends and people who know him and have hit a dead end in this case.

"We've exhausted our leads, so we are asking anyone who might have seen him to call police," Esparza said.

Police described Foote as a 5-foot-7 black male, weighing 140 pounds. He has brown eyes and a

shaved head. He was last seen wearing a gray, red, and black rain jacket

and gray pants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 575-4444 and 558-5508 (Missing Person Unit), or text-a-tip to
