Friends and family of a Medford teenager who went missing two weeks ago will gather tonight at Hawthorne Park to discuss new search efforts and seek volunteers to help locate him.

The public is invited to the gathering, which will begin at 7 p.m.

Brandon Edward Perdue, 18, went missing June 13 and police say the last clue of his whereabouts came from the Lake of the Woods area. Perdue was last seen at a Dairy Queen in White City. The previous day he had told his girlfriend he might harm himself by overdosing on pills.

A signal from Perdue's cell phone bounced off a tower near Highway 140 at Lake of the Woods at about 8 p.m. the night he vanished. A ground and air search by Jackson County search and rescue crews failed to locate him.

He was last seen driving a red Honda Civic, with Oregon license plate XVB 615. Anyone who has seen the teenager or his car should call Medford police at 774-2200.
