CHESTERTOWN, Md.- Maryland State Police are asking the public's help in finding a teenager who walked off from an Eastern Shore youth counseling facility last week. The teen is being described by troopers as "critically missing."

Hunter C. Lemp, 17, is described as a white male, 5-foot-8, 175 pounds, with short brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a light blue sweatshirt and black pants. Police said Lemp has family in Parsonsburg and Mardela Springs, Md., and may attempt to contact relatives in either location.

On the morning of August 28, 2014, Maryland State Police from the Centreville Barrack were dispatched to Kent Youth Inc., on the 7500 block of Quaker Neck Road in Chestertown, for a report of a missing person. Troopers were told Lemp had apparently walked off from the facility and was last seen about 5:30 a.m. that day.

Troopers conducted a search for Lemp and entered his description as a missing person in law enforcement databases. His information was provided to law enforcement agencies throughout the region. The Eastern Shore Information Center also issued a lookout to police departments.

Police said the initial search failed to locate Lemp and police have developed no leads throughout the past weekend. Investigators from the Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division are now involved in coordinating the ongoing search and investigation. The Maryland State Police Child Recovery Unit has been notified and is providing assistance.

Lemp is not wanted for or charged with any crime, according to police. They said his family and authorities are concerned about his welfare. Anyone with information about Lemp, or who may have seen someone matching his description, is urged to contact State Police immediately at the Centreville Barrack at (410) 758-1101, ext. 7.
