April 22, 2020

On April 17, 2020 Deputies with the Smith County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 3300 Block of Hwy 110 North in Tyler to assist Child Protective Services. Upon arrival, Deputies contacted a Caseworker with CPS who was attempting to take custody of Joshua Lynn Frazier – 14 who lives at this residence. The CPS Caseworker had obtained a Writ of Attachment to take possession of the child from his father, Mitchell Lee Frazier.

It was learned that prior to arrival of Deputies, the CPS Caseworker had made contact with Mitchell Frazier at the home. When the Deputies checked this residence, neither Mitchell Frazier nor Joshua Frazier were present. It is believed that both subjects fled out of the back door prior to the arrival of Deputies.

At this time, Joshua Frazier’s health and welfare are in question due to reasons that cannot disclosed. Joshua Frazier is described as a white male, 5’3”, 130 lbs., brown hair and brown eyes. The father, Mitchell Frazier, is described as a white male, 5’10”, 200 lbs., brown hair and green eyes. They will possibly be driving a 2000 Chevy Silverado crew cab dually, tan in color and bearing Texas license plate BF43711.
