CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Chesterfield Township police are organizing a weekend search for a 15-year-old boy who has been missing for two weeks.

Nathaniel Bishop left his home in Chesterfield Township around 6 p.m. on May 25 after an argument with his mother, police said. He lives in the area of 24 Mile Road and Gratiot Avenue. 

Nathaniel is considered missing and endangered.

Nathaniel is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has dark brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and black shorts, riding a gray mountain bike.

Police believe Nathaniel might be carrying a black bag with additional clothing inside. He left his home on the bicycle, which was later found without the rear rack on it.
