Officials with the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) are asking for the public's help, as authorities search for a 14-year-old murder suspect.

According to a statement released by DPS Tuesday night, Joshua Cade Richardson is believed to be armed, and may pose a danger to others. Richardson is described as 5' 6" tall, weighing 135 lbs, with short brown hair and blue eyes.

Richardson, according to the statement, was last seen in the Show Low Pines Estates area wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans, and brown American Eagle dress shoes. Richardson, according to the statement, was also described as having acne, and has a road rash-type scar on his right forearm.

According to DPS, a burglary was reported at a residence in Concho, on the morning of October 3. When officials with the Apache County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene, they found a dead person, and DPS' Criminal Investigations Division was requested to be the lead investigative agency.

DPS officials are asking the public to not approach Richardson, and to immediately call 911 to report his location. Anyone with information on the murder should call DPS at 877-272-8329.
