Deputies learned shortly before 6:30 p.m. that Larry Avila had not arrived home from Valencia Middle School, 4400 W. Irvington Road, said Deputy Tom Peine, a Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokesman.
The boy was last seen at the school Monday afternoon, Peine said.
Deputies worked closely with Tucson Unified School District officials but were unsuccessful in finding Larry, said Peine.
The child is described as thin and about 4 feet 3 inches tall. He has brown hair and eyes, and was last seen wearing his school uniform, a blue shirt and brown shorts.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
