Local authorities are searching for an 11-year-old boy from The Bronx in New York City after he didn't return home from school, according to reports. Police are requesting the public's assistance in tracking down Sean Simmons. 

Simmons, who was considered to be a homebody, was reported as missing Tuesday after he didn't come home after school. Simmons was last spotted at 5:00 p.m. at his school on Mohegan Avenue in West Farms, a residential neighborhood. He is not being considered a runaway. 

Simmons attends the Urban Assembly School of Wildlife Conservation, a school that drew headlines in September after an 18-year-old student stabbed a fellow classmate to death and caused injury to another. He reportedly enjoyed attending school and is said to have always returned home immediately afterward. 

Police described Simmons as black, roughly 4-foot-10 and weighing about 80 pounds, according to New York Daily News. He also has brown eyes and black hair. Simmons was last seen wearing a black jacket, green pants and green sneakers, according to CBS affiliate WCBS-TV.

No further details have been released by the NYPD on Simmons' disappearance. 

Local law enforcement asks that anyone with information on that matter calls Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. Tips can also be submitted online or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
