According to detectives with the Broward Sheriff's Office, 10-year-old Shad Rahman Olivier Palmeus was last seen around 1 p.m. Wednesday at a Mobil gas station located at 1391 South State Road 7.

The boy’s father, Elie Palmeus, spoke to Local 10 News’ Roy Ramos, saying that he was in physical pain and only wanted to find his son.
