EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that it would be searching for Gannon Stauch near Highway 105 and Highway 83 on Friday. However, it later said the search was postponed.

“As we have explained throughout this investigation, this is a very fluid investigation & it can change at any minute of the day,” the sheriff’s office said via Twitter.

The intersection is located in the northwest portion of the county east of Monument.

Gannon, 11, has been missing since Jan. 27. His stepmother, Letecia Stauch, said she last saw him between 3:15 and 4 p.m. heading to a friend’s home in their suburban neighborhood just southeast of Colorado Springs.

The area immediately around the intersection of Highways 105 and 83 is rural, but residential neighborhoods are located nearby.

The sheriff’s office said the area has not been searched before. It did not say why the search was postponed.

Anyone with information should contact the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office’s Investigations Tip Line at 719-520-6666 or call 911, if appropriate.
