MADISON, Wis. -

The Madison Police Department is seeking help to locate a 15-year-old boy who has been missing for more than a month.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said authorities are not concerned that Maxwell Esser has been a victim of a crime; however, the Madison teen has a pre-existing medical condition that requires medication, which he has likely been without.

Police said Esser is black, 6 feet tall with black hair, brown eyes and weighs 178 pounds. The teen was last seen on Nov. 10 in Madison at the Goodman Center wearing a blue fleece pullover, gray T-shirt, jeans and work boots, according to the report.

Madison Police Department asks anyone with information to call the South police station at 266-5938 (call 608-266-4418 after hours).
