FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Police are asking for the public's help in finding a North Carolina boy who disappeared years ago.

Blake Julian Trenton Deven has not been seen in several years, according to family members.

On Wednesday, Fayetteville police and the FBI searched three locations for Deven as part of an investigation, police said.

This, as investigators conduct interviews in a separate Fayetteville police investigation.

Investigators also shared a photo of Deven, who is believed to have been taken in 2012. An age-progressed photo shows what he may look like today at age 17.
