North Las Vegas police are looking for three boys who ran away from home on Sunday.

Officer Chrissie Coon said the kids’ foster mother noticed they were gone when she woke up that day at their home in the 3900 block of Buteo Lane, near Aviary Way and Deer Springs Way.

The boys — Daniel Valerio-Contreras, 15; Armando Guajardo-Valerio, 12; and Emilio Valerio-Contreras, 8 — apparently packed before leaving, taking toys, scooters and clothes. They were last seen in North Las Vegas near Decatur Boulevard and Deer Springs Way near Loop 215.

Daniel, who is 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs 140 pounds, has run away from home before, his foster mother told police. He has gauges in his ears.

Armando is 5-feet-2-inches tall, weighs about 125 pounds and wears braces. Emilio is 4 feet tall, 2 inches and weighs 90 pounds.

All three have brown hair and brown eyes.

Police ask anyone with information about the brothers to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111 or Nevada Child Seekers at (702) 458-7009.

Area hospitals have been asked to check their registries for the kids.
