Windley said Wyatt is a paranoid schizophrenic and has not taken his medicine since he left. Relatives told police that Wyatt can become a danger to himself and others without his medication.

Windley said it is unknown what Wyatt was wearing at the time. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Wyatt’s whereabouts should call 911 or contact the Clayton County Police Department at (770) 477-3648.
