Levi is 6 feet tall and weighs 210 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue Under Armour sweatshirt and cowboy boots.

A missing person report has been filed with Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office.

“We believe he traveled to southern Minnesota and is possibly in a different state by now,” his aunt Krissy Selseth said.

“I talked to him yesterday at 1:30 p.m. and he told me he made a mistake and was on his way back home and asked me to tell Grandpa he’s sorry,” she said. “He didn’t come home and waiting just gave him time to go further and further. I’m worried about his safety. He’s huge into social media right now, and I think that’s where he’s getting a lot of love and attention. You never know what could happen. We have no idea where he is going.”

She said if she could get a message to Levi she would say: “I just want you to come home safe. We love you, we want to help you and will come and get you wherever you are.”

Anyone with information about Levi’s whereabouts or his vehicle should call 911 or contact the Hubbard County Sheriff's Office at 218-732-3331.

“Please call the police with any sightings or my cell (218-368-6604) or Donald (218-252-1857),” Selseth said.

She said she posted Levi’s story on her Facebook page last night and it has already had over 600 shares.

“It sounds from his social media that he’s probably been planning this for awhile,” she said.
