Public's help sought to locate missing man

Child in Need: Stuart

• Who: 10-year old Stuart

• Where: Brainerd

• Interests: Bike riding, BMX racing, playing Frisbee, swimming, fishing, bowling and hunting.

• Why I want a partner: “I’d like someone to take me fishing and hunting. I think it would be fun to have a grown-up friend.”

• Current number of children waiting for partners: 29 boys, 21 girls.

Stuart is an only child who has no relationship with his dad. He’s bright, energetic, happy and likes attention. Mom would like him to have a positive adult male in his life — someone who can teach Stuart what is involved in becoming a man.
