Update:  Late Tuesday, KXL learned both 14 year old Drew Martin and 15 year old Joseph Beals were found on a TriMet bus near Lloyd Center.  Portland police confirmed to KXL, cops were called to the Portland Rescue Mission in the afternoon on a report the two had been staying there but when cops arrived the two were gone.  We’ll update this story as details become available.


Two Hillsboro teenagers head to a concert in Portland and haven’t been heard or seen since.  Now a mother is asking for help.

The pair, Drew Martin and Joseph Beals told friends they were heading to a concert Friday night in the Rose Quarter but Drew’s mom says she hasn’t heard from her son since.

“He’s never run away before. We are really worried about him. This is so out of character for him that I don’t know why he would do this”, said Erica Spencer.

She tells KGW that her son wasn’t prepared to spend the night anywhere.  She’s now looking for help including some from Tri-Met whom she hopes will allow access to surveillance cameras.  She wants to know if her son ever made onto a MAX train in Hillsboro and if he arrived in downtown Portland.
